  Tony Overwater (bass) ・ Atzko Kohashi (piano)               

Our duo album Crescent portrays the spiritual world of John Coltrane, playing his songs from the album Crescent but with our own interpretation. We want to highlight the beauty of his compositions as a duo of piano and bass in a different context.

JP edition

The highly refined Japanese/Amsterdam based pianist Atzko Kohashi and equivalent bassist Tony Overwater invariably deliver excellent chamber jazz. Their Cresent album sounds like a musical star menu, everything is right down to the smallest details: The choice of repertoire, the acoustics, tempos and interpretations are all as delicate as they are tasteful.
