Yuhan Su

In many ways, Yuhan Su represents the voice of the new generation of jazz musicians. Though she is firmly rooted in jazz tradition, her music is innovative, emotional, cerebral and most importantly, always lyrical. Her compositions and improvisations are uniquely hers, marked with an amalgamation of complexity, intensity and emotional resonance. And though she is capable of blistering technique, she always maintains a sense of melodic lyricism and wonder in her playing.

“It's been a pretty wild music journey. From learning J.S. Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Johannes Brahms, Robert Schuman..'s music by playing piano, and getting highly inspired by Ravel, Debussy, Bela Bartok by studying composition, until my percussion study in the university and graduate school, John Cage, Steve Reich, Iannis Xenakis, Keiko Abe, Minoru Miki... a lot of great contemporary composers' music walks into my ear. And after all this, it's jazz! Jazz is like a conclusion for me. I mean I got to learn the skill to conclude things and then develop it in my own way. It's hard to explain the genre and style, but I just need to non-stop write and play. Let all this energy transform to something from here. Let imagination go farer and farer.” Yuhan said.
