Around these years, Han is keeping up involve to all kinds of musical occasion and pursuing for further musical nuances. Han has been playing with different kinds of line-up, including his self-improvisatory collaboration "IV" which has received tons of positive feedback in October 2016, he had been played with the guitar duo line up from Ron Ng, Marcus Ho and Ted Lo, and currently playing with the notably jazz quintet in Hong Kong "Wong Way Down".
I’m from Tokyo and I was born in 1992. I have studied under Tatsuya Sato who is a graduate from the Senzoku College of Music jazz department. I have also studied under Junko Saito, Kuni Bando Sen and others in classical music.I have worked as a professional during my school years. In 2011, I have taken part in the Taipei JazzFestival as a guest performer. I have won the championship in “HOT HOUSE ALTO SAXOPHONE BATTLE” which is held by Shigeru Kikuchi in 2013. During the three school years, I am authorized by the university as a member of the group of special selected players. I am actively involved in live performances, studio recordings, and teaching private lessons around Tokyo. I have started performing in Hong Kong last year, during the 3-day stay all 50 CDs were sold out. Having established a name and have made a few good friends in the scene, more performances and jobs are on their way. Moreover, I am participating in the Twitter channel [my six seconds jazz phrase] as a sax lecturer. I play a wide genre from Jazz – R&B to J-Pops. Besides working in the quartet under my name, I am also challenging experimental sounds and other various styles daringly.
His improvisation is an escalation from the melody. Tho music is invisible but you can feel the devilish pressure right in front, making it impossible to take your eyes off him. (commented byTakenori Eguchi)…
