Born in Yokohama in 1994, Kanon Aonami is an alto saxophonist and composer who plays jazz and improvised music at performance venues mainly in Tokyo and Yokohama. She is also a talented composer, and at Ftarri she often performs her own compositions in addition to improvised music. In June 2021 Aonami started appearing periodically at Ftarri; she has performed with musicians including pianist Fumi Endo, alto sax player Masahide Tokunaga, and British guitarist and Tokyo resident Sean Colum.

Focusing on her compositions, this album includes performances of three of Aonami’s composed works. Two of them (1, 3) were performed by Aonami and Sean Colum, while the other (2) is a duo performance by Sean Colum and Fumi Endo. The bonus track at the end (4) is an improvised trio performance by Aonami, Colum and Endo. All were recorded live at Ftarri on February 6 (3) and April 24 (1, 2, 4), 2023.
