Takuya Kuroda

A highly acclaimed trumpeter born in Kobe, Japan, Takuya is a forward-thinker who has created a unique hybrid sound that combines melodic jazz, funk, post-bop, fusion and hip-hop music.

It was here that Takuya met vocalist José James, with whom he collaborated on the projects "Blackmagic and No Beginning No End. After graduating, Takuya established himself on the New York jazz scene, performing with Akoya Afrobeat and, in recent years, DJ Premier's band Badder.
