ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
First CD by Boston based Japanese Jazz pianist Yoko Miwa. "On her initial CD, Yoko Miwa demonstrates a full command of the inner-directed, post-Bill Evans piano idiom, which also takes in the work of Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, and Steve Kuhn. "In the Mist of Time" amply displays her burgeoning talent as a writer of melodically inviting, impressionistic material, as well as introducing a technically assured soloist with a clean, singing sound and an occasional penchant for the blues in pastels." -legendary jazz critic James Isaac's. "In the Mist of Time displays the depth and breadth of Yoko Miwa's talent.-The Boston Herald.
Born in Kobe, Japan, Miwa studied classical piano from the age of 4. While in college, she began to study jazz with pianist Minoru Ozone, father of internationally renowned jazz pianist Makoto Ozone. She abandoned classical music in 1995 when she entered Koyo Conservatory of Music to study jazz theory and performance. In 1996, she received a scholarship to Koyo Conservatory's sister jazz institution, the Berklee College of Music in Boston. After graduating in 1999, Miwa joined the Berklee faculty, serving as accompanist to vocalist Kevin Mahogany. She recorded with Kevin in his upcoming duets CD release. In 2001, she was honored as a featured performer in Washington D.C. at The Kennedy Center's "Mary Lou William's Women in Jazz Festival" A regular member of the Ryles Jazz Orchestra, whose guests have included Slide Hampton, Arturo Sandoval, and Jon Faddis, she appears on the band's debut CD, Live at Ryles. Miwa's debut CD as a leader, Yoko Miwa "In the Mist of Time" was released in 2001 on the Tokuma Label. In 2003, she lead her own trio on a tour to Japan appearing at major Tokyo Jazz clubs Body & Soul and Alfie. She has also worked with George Garzone and Jerry Bergonzi, John Lockwood, and Mike Turk.

Wonderful!
Frankly I was hesitant about the CD because of the cover, but the music inside the CD is refreshingly wonderful! A thoroughly enjoyable listen.

GREAT PIANO PLAYING
A subtle, thoughful pianist. Most of the tracks are played by a trio, saxophonist Tim Mayer appears on three songs. My favorite tracks are Alice and Red Dragonfly (a piano solo with Gospel overtones).
