Ayumi Ishito is a Brooklyn based saxophonist and composer.
Based in Brooklyn since 2010, Ayumi Ishito is a Japanese-born saxophonist/composer whose spunky style consists in a contemporary amalgamation of genres with a profusion of mood changes and predicated in demarcated structures that involve both group texture and individual improvisation.
Her sophomore album is called Midnite Cinema and, contrary to her debut trio album, features a supple quintet with guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums
In 2007, Ayumi received a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. She spent three years there studying performance and composing. At Berklee, she studied with Joe Lovano, George Garzone, Hal Crook, and Frank Tiberi who among others have been her biggest influences.
After graduating from Berklee in 2010, Ayumi moved to New York where she immediately found herself immersed in the jazz scene. She began to place herself in jam sessions at New York’s hot jazz spots, playing with some of the leading jazz musicians including Roy Hargrove, Ambrose Akinmusire, and Johnny O’neal, just to name a few.
