Kenji Tokunaga (John Colonna Quartet) | Know Your Bass Player

Kenji Tokunaga (John Colonna Quartet)

 

Where is the electric bass headed? Who are some of the young cats on the scene in New York City?

 

Enter Kenji Tokunaga. A former student at the New School of Jazz, Kenji has worked major local venues (Blue Note, Shrine, B.B. King’s) and shared stages with a legend or two or three (Force MDS, Bobby Womack, Geno Young) to cite a few, in this city considered the epicenter of jazz.

 

A double threat on electric and upright, Tokunaga is an exemplary pocket player, improviser, and soloist, referencing be-bop to hip-hop, rhythm and blues, and beyond.
