A highly acclaimed composer, Yutaka Uchida has been awarded COAHSI Performing Arts Award, Premier Grant Award, etc. All About Jazz gave his first CD “Living Together” a rave review and called it “easily one of the top outings of the year .”
Yutaka has also been contributing to the cutting edge NY music scene as a highly versatile drummer for years, known for his clear, crisp tone, rock-solid groove and innovative improvisational skills. He has toured worldwide, has appeared at some of the world class festivals and has been credited on numerous recordings.
MUSOH is a live performing band project that aims to realize the thoughts and ideas woven into Yutaka Uchida's compositions.
The project name MUSOH, the term that translates to “incomparable,” was actually inspired by the “MUSOH Principle” of macrobiotic diet philosophy, where everything in the universe has a characteristic of either yin or yang and seeking balance between these qualities is essential.
See MUSOH performing live and you will find layers and layers of contrasting elements and materials in an exquisite balance.
