All About Jazz on Toru Dodo Trio at Cleopatra's Needle, NYC Nov.6 2008

Those who are fortunate enough to catch him live will no doubt discover one of the more engaging music-makers on today's jazz scene. on Toru Dodo Trio at Blue Note NYC on March 18 2007

“Boneless and Skinless” is such a cute ditty that is much more complicated than the trio would ever have let on that afternoon. Playing against swiftly shifting accents and time signatures were effortlessly cast off. It compared to Vince Guaraldi’s compositions written for The Peanuts television specials. The audience seemed to enjoy hearing the story behind “Boneless and Skinless” as much as the performance itself. Dodo’s delivery from the stage between tunes should make him consider comedy as a side gig.
