   Biography_

 Yuichiro Tokuda  (Birth March 9, 1981.)
  _Jazz Saxophonist, Vocalist & Composer.

 Picked up from Short bio @ Borneo Jazz 2011 @ Malaysia

  "Yuichiro Tokuda is an emerging star in the Japanese music scene. 
  After studying at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, 
 he returned to Japan to form the Yuichiro Tokuda Quintet whose first album was acclaimed as
 "the cutting edge of the present progressive form of jazz" in Jazz Life magazine. 
 In 2008, Tokuda received an award as the “New Face of the Year in Art & Culture” 
 from the Chiba-City Government, the first time ever for a jazz artist. 
 In 2008, Tokuda changed his band’s name to Yuichiro Tokuda’s RALYZZ DIG. 
 Last year he performed in Japan’s most prestigious jazz festival “Yokohama Jazz Promenade”
 as well as in numerous other smaller festival throughout the country. 
 Yuichiro Tokuda has released four CDs. 
 This will be RALYZZ DIG’s premiere performance in Malaysia."

PRESS REVIEW / 3rd Album - Imagination LIVE @ Shinjuku PIT-INN
 70 minutes powerful album!! - full of the enthusiasm and very unique tone and play style.
                               _JazzLife Magazine (2010 Japan)

PRESS REVIEW / 4th Album - Imagination
"Imagination" is enormously impressive, 
and definitely as excellent work as I assure it is ahead of a couple generations. 
                         _CD Jorunal Magazine (2010 Japan)

PRESS REVIEW / About Yuichiro Tokuda
The perfect blend of jazz fused with rock styles 
makes for truly the most appealing cross-genre grooving music.
You might be wondering why we would feature him here…. 
Well, because his music is AMAZING. 
Open your ears and your mind and take a listen to any one of his songs.
