Jam Ka Series

“Jam Ka” is Yosuke Onuma’s lifework project. Three albums have been released so far.

“Jam Ka” 2010
recorded in New York
Yosuke has been fascinated in creole jazz since 2007 after listening his long time friend Jacques Schwarz-bart’s 2 Gwo-Ka jazz albums. The music matched perfectly what he was looking for. As a surfer, Yosuke had wanted to create his own music that unites jazz with nature feeling. In this album, Jacques produced smartly and played saxophone brilliantly. Reggie Washington added a modern groove. Olivier Juste and Young Arnaud Dolmen focused on playing Ka.

“Jam Ka Deux” 2016
recorded in Paris
Though this one is an intensive guitar album, it has a romanticism on some ballads by playing of Grégory Privat. Reggie, Olivier and Arnaud are here. Arnaud played drums mainly on this album. The guests players added some textures : Simone Schwarz-bart wrote a merancholic lyric about nature and read it dramatically. Hervé Samb and Sonny Troupé played a blues so fun. Jacques concentrated on producing.

“Jam Ka 2.5 The Tokyo Session” 2019
recorded in Tokyo
The title means literally about the state of the project. Jam Ka band is on the way to the next step. This is a live documentary recording with a video shooting at a studio in Tokyo to capture the moment. Including tunes from “Jam Ka” and “Jam Ka Deux.” A beautiful medley of “Beyond The Sea” to “Le Bonheur” Grégory’s composition. “Gradation Part 4” is an exciting improvised session of Yosuke with Olivier and Arnaud.
