The band MicroCorgi is a NYC based trio composed of three musicians: pianist Andrew McGowan, guitarist Yuto Kanazawa, and drummer Ilya Dynov. They hail from far corners of the globe and have diverse influences such as European Jazz, Japanese rock, Afro-beat, and New Orleans brass band music. Each have received great recognition of their talents, but when they met and started making sounds together in 2018 they found themselves learning from each other and creating something new. Their unique “organ trio” format has the bass duties handled in turns by McGowan and Kanazawa. The combination of piano, synth bass, guitar, and drums results in a musical relationship akin to that established by Jimmy Smith and Wes Montgomery, and which has been explored by guitarists Pat Metheny and Gilad Hekselman. Their sound has a minimalist aesthetic reminiscent of Philip Glass, combined with a soulful truth indebted to Black American Music. Their album MicroCosmos is a sonic universe permeated by synth-bass future-funk, catchy melodies, and atmospheric vibes.
