Head to Tomodachi at the Mall of America on Tuesday, June 6th for an exclusive pop-up performance and CD signing with Japanese jazz sensation and former J-Pop star, Senri Oe!

As a special mini-preview leading up to his major concert, Harukaze 2017, on Wednesday at Hamline University, Senri Oe will provide a more intimate experience for fans at Tomodachi. Copies of his latest album “Answer July” will be on hand for people to buy and have signed by the artist himself.

This performance is free and open to the public.



In 2008, Senri Oe shelved his highly successful 25-year career as a Japanese pop star and actor to move to New York City in pursuit of a childhood dream—becoming a jazz musician. As a lyricist, composer, and arranger since 1983, Oe built a robust Japanese popular music (J-Pop) career, releasing 45 singles and nearly 20 albums, winning the Japanese Gold Disc and FNS Pop Music Awards, and hosting a talk show on Japan’s national broadcasting network. Enrolling at The New School at age 47, Oe studied under Junior Mance, Aaron Goldberg and Toru Dodo. Since graduating in 2012, Oe has worked tirelessly to embed himself in New York’s jazz ecosystem. Having established his own record label, PND Records and Music Publishing, Oe plays monthly at Tomi Jazz New York, is a regular pianist for Morning Musuko, a 17-piece big band specializing in Japanese popular music (J-pop), and has now released three albums.
