AYUMI ISHITO.1Ayumi Ishito is a Brooklyn based saxophonist and composer.

Ayumi Ishito’s debut album was recorded with her longstanding quintet, which was formed in 2011. Unlike traditional jazz saxophone quintets, however, Ishito’s outfit focuses on musical stylings more akin to indie, progressive, and avant garde music.

Her compositions concentrate on rhythmic shifts and ensemble texture rather than featured solos, differentiating her sound from other jazz efforts in the indie music scene.
