Daisuke has become a highly sought after guitarist since his arrival to New York City in 2002. “An accomplished player with a penchant for penning appealing melodies,” (JazzTimes, February 2006), Mr. Abe also handles his instrument “…with a deep sense of tradition, and more importantly, consistent expression,” (DownBeat, April 2013). During his time in New York, Daisuke has been very active as a performer and recording artist. His debut album, “On My Way Back Home” (Nagel-Hayer), was released in 2005. In 2008 Daisuke launched a new band, which he co-leads and produces, UoU, a quintet made up of members originally from Japan. UoU’s debut, “Home” (Tippin’ Records), was released in 2010. Abe followed UoU’s debut with its second release in 2013, “Take the 7 Train” (Tippin’). Mr. Abe has led his band at many of the famous venues in New York City including: Blue Note, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, Smalls Jazz Club and Cleopatras’ Needle. He has performed with Mark Turner, Jon Cowherd, Anthony Wonsey, Walter Blanding, Marcus Printup, John Ellis, and Jaleel Shaw.
