After the extraordinary success of four sold-out dates at the Blue Note in Tokyo and first Europe tour with a dynamic rhythm section and powerful women with whom he recorded SPHERES (Blue Note rec); eclectic and virtuous Japanese pianist Chihiro Yamanaka is back to the club!

“The biggest surprise of the night… a bit like Mulgrew Miller on classically trained steroids, and with a progressive bent… Right and left, jaws were dropping.” – JazzTimes review of Yamanaka at the Umbria Jazz Festival

"Since the heyday of Oscar Peterson, few pianists have either refined the technique or cultivated the desire to play straightahead classic jazz with the kind of showboating virtuosity that makes listeners doubt their senses. Chihiro Yamanaka, the prizewinning classically trained pianist from Japan (and a rising star in her adopted New York), is one of the world’s most accomplished heirs to Peterson’s legacy, and some have compared her effortless virtuosity and warmth to that of the late great Mulgrew Miller, too."

Renowned Japanese pianist Chihiro Yamanaka is one of her native country’s most popular, though she has long been based in New York City. This Blue Note Recording Artist is especially well-known for leading trios, tonight’s group will stand up to some high expectations! On top of virtuosic, light-speed chops, Yamanaka has an irresistible swing to her playing and writing. This is highly recommended for anyone interested in straight-ahead jazz.z52cIT8cCDw
