Tadataka Unno Trio Returns @ the cell
Born August 15, 1980 in Tokyo, Japan to parents who are music fans, Tadataka Unno grew up listening to many kinds of music. He began playing the piano at age 4. At age 9 he started to play jazz. He attended Tokyo University for Music and Fine Art where he studied music composition. Unno started his own group and began to play professionally while in school.
Upon graduation, Unno joined one of Japan's leading bassist Yoshio Suzuki's trio. This was when his career took off. He spent first 10 years in Japan in his career where Swing Journal said "not knowing him means you don't know the Japanese jazz scene". He decides to move to the birthplace of jazz, the United States, in 2008 and start from scratch.
Unno was selected to attend Betty Carter's Jazz Ahead 2010 at the Kennedy Center in D.C. Upon recommendation by Nathan Davis and Curtis Fuller, he attended the Jazz Rising Stars Program of Ravinia Festival in Chicago in the same year.
In 2013, he performed for a week at the Village Vanguard as a member of Jimmy Cobb Trio.
Unno also joined tribute concert for the late great Dick Morgan in D.C in 2014. In autumn he released his fifth album "Journeyer" and toured successfully in Japan.
