Brandon Music



The Yabuno Ettun Project


Saturday, August 2nd at 7:30pm

The improvisatory and “conversational” Yabuno Ettun Project (YEP) comes to Brandon Music.

YEP is a highly creative collaboration between Japanese pianist Haruka Yabuno and Israeli bassist Ehud Ettun. The duo describes their music as “on the line between classical and jazz with a mixture of Baroque esthetics and contemporary jazz”.

Music critic and editor of the blog BlueMonk Moods, Eliseo Cardona, says they are "two young masters creating dialogues of mesmerizing possibilities. Their music is based on the intrepid attitude that anything goes as long as risk is shooing away any fear."

Each one an imaginative composer, Ettun and Yabuno have created a unique interaction on stage. Their music is versatile and their creativity is on another level. "The beauty is that we came together through music way before we could find a common verbal language," explains Yabuno. "Once music took over, once we knew that improvising could take us anywhere, the journey itself was our destination."

Their repertoire is derived from a wide spectrum of sources and influences, which may explain why each concert is a unique experience. Ettun explains that "even though we came from different backgrounds, perhaps musically, indeed culturally, we found many similarities between Japan and Israel, let alone between us. Exploring without asking permission, without fear is what rewards us as musicians and listeners."

The YEP has performed in various venues in the U.S., including Jazz at the Kitano in New York, Lilypad in Massachusetts, Somethin' Jazz Club in New York and more.

Tickets are $15 with a pre-concert dinner available for an additional $20. Reservations are recommended for the show and required for dinner. Venue is BYOB. Call (802) 465-4071 or e-mail us for reservations or more information.
