Discovered by the Japanese legend Terumasa Hino, Jun Miyake started his career as a Jazz trumpeter, graduating Berklee College of Music.

Miyake has closely worked with Pina Bausch, Wim Wenders, Robert Wilson, Oliver Stone, Jean-Paul Goude, Philippe Decoufle, etc, as well as collaborations with artists such as Hal Willner, Arto Lindsay, Arthur H, Vinicius Cantuaria, Bulgarian Voices, David Byrne, Grace Jones, Gavin Friday, Ron Carter, Michael Brecker, and many others. With his ability to blend the most seemingly disparate elements of music, he has achieved much respect throughout the world. Miyake's album "Stolen from strangers" has been selected as "best album of the year" for numerous European music magazines, and the Grand Prix for the German Record clitics Award 2008.He has been selected as "man of 2009" by Galerie Lafatette homme. Wim Wenders film "pina" which Miyake contributed core music for has been awarded as "best documentary film" by Europian film award 2011, Nominated for Academy award 2012 June Miyake's music comes light-footed as the bossa nova, accessible as sophisticated pop and refined and versatile as lively jazz. Whispered Garden is an ever-changing constellation of sound images and scenes, bossa nova and reggae, Kurt Weill and Nino Rota, chanson and symphony, jazz and improvisation, rock and folk: the album is a must-hear from start to finish, mixing all styles and genres to create a hybrid of musical genius Jun is truly unique: he constantly produces that Third Thingbetween music and imagery.You enter this space for the first time and youre already addicted to it Wim Wenders . Stolen From Strangers, by Japanese arranger Jun Miyake, is your new best friend it sounds right in any context: loud, soft, in the kitchen, while travelling, on the radio. Each track is full of delight,.. whether Miyake is the new Gil Evans or merely the new Bacharach, he's made a fantastic album. The Guardian
