NEWS

We are looking forward to some exciting months ahead of us. Our sophomore record Shishi's Wish will be officially released on April 20th.

We are very grateful that for our new album we were able to continue working with a wonderful team: our label in Germany – BERTHOLD Records, Systems Two Recordings Studios in Brooklyn, our mixing engineer Tyler McDiarmid in NYC and our graphic designer Carolina Arevalo in Santiago de Chile. Also, one more person put some extra magic into this production: Darius van Helfteren, our mastering engineer in Amsterdam. 

Thank you. 

We will present our new music to audiences worldwide as we will be on tour in Japan, Europe, South America and the U.S. Please check our calendar for upcoming dates. See you on the road!

ABOUT


MURAL is a collective group made of three rising jazz stars in New York.
The group showcases each members' virtuosic instrumental skills as well as their refined compositions. Subtle influences of European classical music, Japanese folk, and South American rhythms are just one the culmination of the multiple nationalities and cultures represented in the band. The band's collaboration is apparent through their balanced sound, wide dynamics, and seamless interaction.
MURAL is truly a band effort – a single instrument with three musicians.

  • "The three members do not seek to surprise with special effects. They excel in achieving a sincere and sophisticated music." 

    Neri Pollastri, All About Jazz, May 23rd, 2017
  • "[...] the international trio MURAL has just presented an impressive CD. The organization of their music is as skillful and clever as their ability to play together. Their music is always filled with new colors – well structured but never stringent."

    Michael Laages, NDR "Album of the week" (Northern German Broadcasting), June 2nd, 2016
  • "This multinational trio's album is full of charm."

    Rieko Hirata, Way Out West 6/2016 (Japan)
  • “Guitarist Aki Ishiguro […] favors a technically delicate, unpretentious way of playing, that fully complements the trio. With [German] bassist Peter Schwebs and the Chilean drummer Rodrigo Recabarren he found kindred spirits. MURAL had beautiful, intricate and thrilling compositions like ‘Neruda’ (Aki Ishiguro) and ‘Spätsommer’ (Peter Schwebs).”

    Christian Emigholz, Weserkurier March 5th, 2017 (MIBNIGHT Jazzfestival Bremen/Germany)
  • "A refreshing debut in a classic jazz guitar trio format… [Ishiguro] shows in the ten pieces why the NY jazz scene appreciates this rising star so much […] – a very promising young jazz guitarist."

    Alexander Schmitz, Jazzpodium 6/2016 (Germany)
