Originally conceived as the jazzman’s surrender to the hip-hop beat, Kobayashi’s sounds have developed into an amalgamation of electronica, jazz, hip-hop and orchestral undertones. Formed at the crack of the new millennium, this eight-headed monster wasted little time infiltrating Montreal’s musical underground, and then setting its sights on the rest of the country. With a musical style set to satisfy the energetic hot-stepper, the head-bopping groove aficionado and the cerebral shadow-lurking jazz musician alike, it is fitting that Kobayashi has been blessed with a loyal and growing fan base.

Highlights of the band’s four-year existence include sharing the stage with acid jazz pioneer DJ Greyboy, Juno Award winning band Metalwood and Blue Note recording artist Karl Denson. Years of diligence on the scene culminated with a performance at the 2003 Montreal International Jazz Festival in front of five thousand delighted spectators, and a showcase at the 2004 Canadian Music Week in Toronto.

Kobayashi recently released a second EP, The Night We Took the City, which has garnered its fair share of critical accolades.
