Led by pianist, Shunsuke Watanabe, Schroeder-Headz is a post-jazz trio consisting of piano, bass, and drums. Blending an acoustic trio sound with electronic programming, the group uses beautiful melodies and organic grooves to create an impressive vision of the future of the piano trio.


The group takes its name from toy piano player Schroeder from the famous Peanuts comic strip, and a peek inside the mind of a boy influenced by classical, jazz, dance, and electronic music. The group released its debut album, “Newdays”, in 2010 and has appeared at the Sapporo City Jazz Ezo Groove, Sakaiminato Yokai Jazz Festival, TMF Jazz 4 Days, and Jazz Japan Presents Girls’ Jazz Live Aid 2013.

Other members of the band include Takao Suzuki (Drums) and Shotaro Tamaki (Bass).
