Akira Mizutani debuted in 1992 as a singer/songwriter after playing with musicians such as Masato Tomobe and Yukihiro Takahashi. While writing for commercials and TV series, he founded the Baritone Saxophone ensemble “Tokyo Chutei Iki”, which has since grown into a band infamous among Baritone Saxophone players around the world, and since 2014, has been the host of the “Tokyo International Baritone Saxophone Festival”. Outside of “Tokyo Chutei Iki”, Mizutani often writes lyric and performs on vocals, as he does in “tah!”, a unit with Tsuneo Imahori and Hiroshi Suzuki. As a lyric writer, he collaborates with artists such as Jun Togawa.
