Biography

Hari Honzu plays instrumental music that moves people's bodies.
Jonathan Rossman, mentored by Ornette Coleman, plays alto saxophone with a deep emotional and melodic sense that is more comparable to a lead singer than a soloist.
Jennings, Opsvik & Christian play together as one unit with a strong sense of texture and dynamic tension & release.
The songs are not free-form jams, but rather are strong, concise statements that replace technical display with solid songwriting.
Hari Honzu is a new band, but they have played around NYC at venues such as NuBlu, Zebulon, Pianos & the Guggenheim Museum and collectively the members have toured the United States, Canada, South America, the U.K. and all of Europe supporting groups such as Blonde Redhead, Pinback and TV on the Radio.
