Hirotaka Izumi started playing piano at a young age, but after listening to Bill Evans, he decided to dedicate his time to becoming a jazz pianist, and since then has piled up a great discography doing studio recordings supporting other artists.

In 1982 he joined the top fusion group The Square (now known as T-Square). As a keyboard player, composer and arranger, he worked during the band’s heyday, participating in more than thirty albums with the group.
His masterpieces such as “Takarajima” and “Omens of Love” were arranged for wind instrument ensembles and have become standard songs among wind orchestras in every high school and local society across Japan.
They continue to be performed to this day.

In 1988 he released his first album as leader called “Amoshe” and released his first solo album “Forgotten Saga” in 1997.

He also produced work for other artists and soundtracks for television and video games.
Izumi currently performs with the groups Pyramid with Yuji Toriyama and Akira Jimbo, The Water Colors with Hiroshi Yoshino and Masaharu Ishikawa, and Hiromitsu with Mitsuru Sutoh.

He has also released three albums as a solo pianist called “Complete Solo Piano Works” which features all of his works.
