Jazz at JAKI: Yuhan Su "City Animals"

In many ways, Yuhan Su represents the voice of the new generation of jazz musicians. Although firmly rooted in the jazz tradition, her music is innovative, emotional, intellectual, and above all, lyrical. Her compositions and improvisations are distinctive, marked with a blend of complexity, intensity and emotional resonance. Although capable of lightning-fast technique, she always maintains a sense of melodic lyricism and wonder in her playing.
She was recently nominated for the DownBeat Critics Poll in the "Rising Star" category for vibraphone.

New York-based Taiwanese vibraphonist Yuhan Su has lived in the U.S. since moving to Boston in 2008 to study at Berklee. Yuhan has released three records as a leader, including "City Animals" (2018, Sunnyside Record), "A Room of One's Own" (2015, Inner Circle Music), and "Flying Alone" (2012, Inner Circle Music). The records have received wide acclaim and numerous music awards and nominations, including "Best Jazz Album of the Year," "Best New Artist," "Best Jazz Single," 'Best Instrumentalist Award' from Golden Indie Music Award and 'Best Performance album of the year,' 'Best Composer Award' from Golden Melody Award in Taiwan, and "Best Release of the Year" from All about Jazz and Downbeat. Yuhan also performed with with various projects in New York, including Brian Krock's Big Heart Machine, Miho Hazama's M_Unit and Kyle Saulnier's Awakening Orchestra, Jason Yeager's Septet, and others.
