Led by electric guitarist Tomoki Spilsbury, North Bay contemporary jazz trio Neiro features Kit Walker on Hammond B-3 and Paul van Wageninen on drums. Though not always front and center, Spilsbury’s electric guitar is the spindle around which his compositions turn, characterized by circular phrasing and bold excursions that echo traditional Japanese melodies.
