Performers: Akiko-Organ (Trio)
AKIKO has been a mainstay on the New York jazz scene since arriving from Japan in 2001. She can be seen around town as a leader or sideman with musicians such as Lou Donaldson, Jimmy Cobb and Eric Alexander. Her fourth and latest U.S. recording, Commencement, features John Hart and Jeff Hamilton.
According to the legendary Dr. Lonnie Smith, “Akiko’s playing is like watching a flower blooming, a bird spreading her wings in the music world. Akiko is here to stay.”
