Patrick Shiroishi Interviewed

Los Angeles-based saxophonist/composer Patrick Shiroishi’s previous LP, 2020’s Descension, heavily focused on the experience of being inside a Japanese-American concentration camp. By doing so, he revisited one of the darkest pages in American history that is not talked about as often as it should. His new album, Hidemi, is a solo multilayered woodwind journey that is more on the personal experience of his grandfather, who appears on its cover, after getting out.
