During the pandemic, saxophonist Mai Sugimoto, bassist Joshua Abrams and drummer Isaiah Spencer came together to perform and honor the life and legacy of Chicago saxophonist Fred Anderson. From that moment on, Sugimoto recognized the magic and chemistry of the trio leading to the creation of her latest album “Sunlight Filtering Through Leaves.”
Reset sits down with the Japanese-born, Chicago-based improvised jazz artist to learn about this new project and her journey in music.
Mai Sugimoto, Joshua Abrams and Isaiah Spencer will be performing at Constellation in Roscoe Village on Friday, Feb. 9, at 8:30 p.m. to celebrate this new album release.
GUEST: Mai Sugimoto, Chicago saxophonist and improvised jazz musician
