‘Like the best fiction, it’s entirely enveloping’ - Downbeat

YUHAN SU

 

In many ways, Yuhan Su represents the voice of the new generation of jazz musicians. Though she is firmly rooted in jazz tradition, her music is innovative, emotional, cerebral and most importantly, always lyrical. Her compositions and improvisations are uniquely hers, marked with an amalgamation of complexity, intensity and emotional resonance. And though she is capable of blistering technique, she always maintains a sense of melodic lyricism and wonder in her playing. 

 

Recent nomination for the DownBeat Critics Poll in the category “Rising Star” of Vibraphone, New York based Taiwanese vibraphonist Yuhan Su has been living in the US since moving to Boston in 2008 to study at Berklee. Yuhan’s three records release 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), have received widespread approval and numerous music awards and nominations, including ‘Best Jazz Album of the Year’, ‘Best New Artist’, ’ Best Jazz Single’, ‘Best Instrumentalist Award’ from the Golden Indie Music Award and ‘Best Performance Album of the year’, ’Best Composer Award’ from the Golden Melody Award in Taiwan, and “Best Release of the Year” by All about Jazz and Downbeat.
