James Macaulay’s Hishakaku Quartet

James Macaulay Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues

2:00 – 3:00pm, Saturday 3 November, WPAC Hall

The Hishakaku Quartet is comprised of 2017 National Jazz Award winner James Macaulay (trombone), the 2017 runner-up Niran Dasika (trumpet), the extraordinary bass player Marty Holoubek and the incredible Japanese drumming virtuoso Shun Ishiwaka. They are excited to be releasing their debut album at Wangaratta, which was recorded in Tokyo in October 2017, and features compositions by Macaulay, Dasika and Holoubek. The album reflects the members’ long term association developed over several tours of Japan; with the band named after their favourite Yakitori restaurant in the small Tokyo suburb of Ekoda.
