Lyrics "Messages from Water" written by Gill  Gladstone




“Messages from Water raises the alarm … militant and spiritual commitment”




“All compositions embrace us with elegance, temperament, sensitivity and sensuality till the final … Jazz, the way we truly love ! ”

Sophie Chambon –  Les Dernières Nouvelles du Jazz



“Exquisite drummer who knows how to caress the skins and cymbals without breaking the ears.”

YVES DORISON  –  CultureJazz 



“His drums, a bubbling spring, fed by the other musicians turn into a torrent.”

"Japan's answer to Paul Motian, Ichiro Onoe is perhaps the next great lyrical drummer of our time."

Bop-N-Jazz / Brent BLACK

"Drummer with a great melodic sensitivity and always able to stimulate a swing lively "

Culture JAZZ / Thierry GIARD



"...in love with cheerful melodies swaying in between modern bop and straight 8th note jazz."




"...he breaks in with conviction of his compositions between swing («Ermitage»), funk («Playground»),  free («What Do You Want») and  balladeers («Wind Child», «Recesses of the Heart»).  And  run throughout the session as a leader : the feeling."




"...an album where the drums draw the luxuriant landscapes of different paths and  atmospheres which  have  always a strong and powerful declaration of love for jazz."                                  

Sun Ship / Franpi BARRIAUX



"...his support is bouncy, his energy is finely channeled. Vibrant and carnal, invigorating, this jazz album sketches a story with subtle colors ; an apparent simplicity, a marked fluidity yet an authentic declaration of love for this music."                                                      

Les Dernières Nouvelles du Jazz / Sophie CHAMBON

"…is it necessary to say once again that Ichiro Onoe is a magnificent drummer that it's time to discover ? "
