“A New Song” Album

2 years ago, when Jose moved to Japan to work at Universal Studios Japan, he met so many talented musicians. Of these incredible musicians was a young pianist named Aiko Yoshiba. Upon connecting with her, they became very good friends and collaborated on many projects throughout his 2 year residency. “I can’t thank her enough for being available to me as much as she was,” says Jose.

About a year after first meeting her, she came to Jose with an idea of creating/composing an album and asked if he would lend his vocals. Honored and humbled, he agreed. The rest is history. From just a mere idea/thought, she created a nine song album entitled, “New Song.” Blending Jazz, Soul, Funk, and Pop, Aiko, along with 3 other extremely talented musicians, birthed this wonderful album that was released in August of 2018.

“New Song” – Aiko Yoshiba

“I am so excited to have been able to be a part of this project and to have had the opportunity to share, not only stages, but this album with all of these musicians – Aiko (pianist), Shinya (saxophonist), Takato (bassist), and Von (drummer) – as well as, the man who engineered the whole thing, Mr. Kazuhei.” ~ Jose

“Thank you everyone for an incredibly fun experience and a special thanks to Aiko for asking me to join them. Because of her, a part of me will always remain in Japan.” ~ Jose
