Yoriyuki Harada Quartet is lead by Yoriyuki Harada, the founder of Japanese legendary Jazz Orchestra “Seikatsu Kōjyō Iinkai Orchestra”. The quartet ascribed to the elite of Japanese free jazz scene. Japanese critics call him the Monster pianist. When he is on stage, his fingers dash on the keyboard like a lightning bolt.
Yoriyuki Harada (b. 1948) is a self-taught pianist. He graduated from the Kunitachi Music College as a clarinetist, but before long started feeling dissatisfaction with strict canons of classical music. Upon graduation, he and his schoolmate and improvisation partner Kazutoki Umezu went to New York, where they made their first recording in the name of Seikatsu Kōjyō Iinkai New York Branch. After returning to Japan in 1976, the two friends formed Shudan-Sokai quartet with Mori Junji and Kikuchi Takashi. Two years later they have gathered together other compatriots and the quartet grew into Seikatsu Kōjyō Iinkai Orchestra, the collective that earned recognition throughout Japan for its humorous appearances. After quitting his work in the Orchestra, Yoriyuki Harada collaborated with Andrew Cyrille, Tristan Honsinger, Henry Grimes, Tobias Delius, Togashi Masahiko and many other improvisers.
However, he has never tried to live on music or seek any type of support from the music industry because this would be boring. For almost 30 years Yoriyuki Harada has performed in Japan just once a month and only in his favorite venue jazz club Aketa-no-mise. According to the pianist, to appear more often would be difficult, because every performance requires a special inner state. He does not own piano, since he decided to come into contact with the instrument only on stage.
“Never have any motif in my music and I never think about my music,” says Harada. But the audiences chew on his performances long after they are over.
