Internationally acclaimed pianist/composer Yoko Miwa is quickly becoming known as one of the most powerful and compelling performers on the scene today. Her trio – with its remarkable telepathy and infectious energy – has brought audiences to their feet worldwide.
For the past decade the Kobe, Japan native has honed one of the most musical and lyrical trio sounds around. Miwa’s band, which has been heralded for their almost telepathic interplay, performs regularly at major jazz clubs worldwide including New York City’s Blue Note Jazz Club and Jazz at Lincoln Center where Miwa was chosen to play on “Marian McPartland & Friends” as part of the Coca Cola Generations in Jazz Festival. She has performed and/or recorded with a wide range of jazz greats including Sheila Jordan, Slide Hampton, Arturo Sandoval, George Garzone, Jon Faddis, Jerry Bergonzi, Esperanza Spalding, Terri Lyne Carrington, Kevin Mahogany, John Lockwood and Johnathan Blake among others. A Boston Phoenix Best Music Poll winner, Miwa is on faculty at Berklee College of Music.
The Yoko Miwa Trio plays Scullers Jazz Club on Oct. 26 Showtime 8 PM. Tickets $25, $40, $75.
This concert celebrates the success of Miwa’s 2017 new recording Pathways – her seventh as a leader – which spent 4 weeks on the Jazz Week top 10 radio charts and is earning wide critical acclaim.
