Album Notes

I'd like to thank all of you who have chosen to listen to this album. My music contains many various elements that come from different grooves, different countries, different textures and colors, but the one common theme throughout is melody. These are songs without words. Can you hear us singing through the music? It is my hope that this album will send you a positive and uplifting message. Musically Yours, Ayako Shirasaki

"Quite possibly the best take on "Oleo" since Sonny Rollins put it out there! Ayako Shirasaki sets the keys and ears ablaze with her unique blend of class, sass and pizzazz on the thoroughly engaging Some Other Time!"
- Dan Bilawsky, writer for allaboutjazz.com, June 19, 2013

"Ayako Shirasaki on 'Some Other Time' shows yet again that she is a delicate dynamo of poetic energy and taste. Whether playing an original or a familiar standard, Ayako's whisking attack infuses the piano with an emotional, organic quality. In her hands, we hear the instrument sigh, pant, rant and rave―with notes becoming a bouquet of exotic flowers." ―Marc Myers, JazzWax.com
