Each year A-NO-NE Ensemble, a Jazz and Brazilian influenced music group formed in the late 80's by virtuoso flutist Hiro Honshuku from Kamakura, Japan brings his audience a delightfully improvisational take on traditional holiday favorites. A-NO-NE Christmas concerts, performed each year in different venues throughout New England, include upbeat selections from their "A-NO-NE Christmas" and "Not That Silent Night" CDs. Selections of traditional Christmas hymnals recomposed by Hiro Honshuku, using twisted harmony structure, influenced by George Russell's Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization, coupled with a Brazilian jazz groove.

"It will be a heavily grooving international Christmas night!" - Anita Coelho

"Congratulations to Hiro Honshuku and the A-No-Ne Christmas. Not That Silent Night is an outstanding jazz instrumental album that will render even the coldest December night far cooler." - Carol Swanson,
