Daisuke Abe has become a highly sought after guitarist since his arrival to New York City in 2002. “An accomplished player with a penchant for penning appealing melodies,” (JazzTimes, February 2006), Mr. Abe also handles his instrument “...with a deep sense of tradition, and more importantly, consistent expression,” (DownBeat, April 2013).

“An accomplished player with a penchant for penning appealing melodies “
 - John Kelman, Jazz Times “It’s too soon to know the fate of Tokyo-born, New York-resident guitarist Daisuke Abe, but his debut record, On My Way Back Home, demonstrates qualities that may well see him emerge in time as a guitarist of note.” 
 -John Kelman, All About Jazz “... Equally telling as composers, each member contributes material that accentuates the group as well as their own abilities. A fine guitarist, Daisuke Abe's “Hanauta” has a modern Americana aura” 
 -Mark F. Turner, All About Jazz “... Each musician, from alto saxophonist Takuji Yamada to guitarist Daisuke Abe and drummer Yoshifumi Nihonmatsu, handle their respective instruments with a deep sense of tradition, and more importantly, consistent expression.”- Ken Micallef, DownBeat Magazine “UoU’s debut album Home is comprised of ten impressive original compositions that fuse elements of Japanese inspired melodies, along with American jazz rhythms and harmonies. This creates something truly special, honest and powerful.”- DownBeat Magazine !
