Welcome to new Gene “Ess” Shimosato website!

Hello and thank you for visiting my new official Japan website. I hope to add interesting and thoughtful content as the site is completed and developed.

I just returned from Japan and really loved it there. The music scene in Japan is amazing! So much going on with really high level musicians. I will be returning to Japan for all of July and August and will have some really special concerts so please come and say hello if you are in the neighborhood! More details will be provided as the dates get closer!

Being back in NYC, I am busy preparing for some upcoming performances. The monthly jazz series at the beautiful Scholes Studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn will be held on April 29th at 7PM. Also, I will start composing for my next album which I hope to record later this year. For all of you who have listened to my current album “Absurdist Theater”, I thank you. I’ve had great feedback about this album from around the world.

Please visit my page periodically and feel free to contact me with your thoughts! Here is a photo from my last performance here in NYC with my band Fractal Attraction.
