Sumire released her second trio album, ‘Travelin’, in 2015. This album was reviewed by the Italian jazz magazine Jazz Convention who wrote: “belonging to the young generation of the Japanese jazz scene, Kuribayashi has become in the last few years one of the most appreciated pianists both for her noteworthy creative qualities and the remarkable storytelling that crosses the textures of her music.” In 2017 she collaborated with legendary Japanese bassist Hideaki Kanazawa to release an acclaimed duo album ‘Nijuso’ through Roving Spirits Records. In 2018 Sumire released her latest two albums back to back - ’Pieces of Color’, a collection of large ensemble compositions featuring 11 of Japan’s top jazz musicians, and ‘The Story Behind’, an intimate piano trio album - to critical acclaim, taking her to the face of Japan’s prestigious Jazz Life Magazine in April 2018. Later in 2018 she performed in London with Jason Yarde, Mark Mondesir and Hideaki Kanazawa and in Andrea, Italy. Sumire brings a distinctive voice as a composer and improvisor on each of her albums, synthesising a broad musical background and a deep respect for the great predecessors in jazz.
