Adam “Von” Baron, a jazz drummer who has lived in Japan for the past 18 months, says he speaks Japanese “at the level of a three-year-old.” But that doesn’t keep him from performing and licensing his music for television, film, video games and other projects. Von Baron, ’97, who holds a UW bachelor’s degree in sociocultural anthropology, will tour Japan and perform music from his first three CDs.
