Excellence in Jazz is celebrating the women of jazz all month during Women's History Month. Tonight, we shine the spotlight on the women of Japan, including Miki Yamanaka:
Japanese-born jazz pianist Miki Yamanaka has a vast collection of kimonos she often wears during her many gigs around NYC, where she has made her home since 2012.
During the pandemic, Miki began live-streaming a weekly concert series from her home featuring top talent from the Big Apple.
She often performs at Smalls and Mezzrow in the West Village and has released several fine recordings.
Tonight we'll feature Miki along with Toshiko Akioyshi, Yoko Miwa, Hiroe Sekine, Sumi Tonooka, Michika Fukumori, and Ayako Shirasaki.
