When Japanese pianist Haruka Yabuno and Israeli bassist Ehud Ettun first met, they skirted the language barrier and communicated through music. Both accomplished composers, the duo bonded over a shared love of improvisation. The result: a highly imaginative repertoire that embraces risk-taking as a crucial component of music making. Of this style, music critic Eliseo Cardona says they are “two young masters creating dialogues of mesmerizing possibilities.” This approach informs the pair’s recently released debut, BiPolar, which includes original songs alongside arrangements of influential compositions and highlights the rising talents’ chemistry.
