Internationally acclaimed pianist/composer Yoko Miwa is one of the most powerful and compelling performers on the scene. She performed at the 2018 Atlanta Jazz Festival and the 2018 Litchfield Jazz Fest. Her trio – with its remarkable telepathy and infectious energy – has brought audiences to their feet worldwide. Dan McClenaghan of All About Jazz said, “4 stars–This is Yoko Miwa at her extroverted best.” Pathways spent 4 weeks on the JazzWeek top 10 radio charts and earned wide critical acclaim. A feature article in DownBeat Magazine referenced Miwa's “impressive technique and a tuneful lyricism that combines an Oscar Peterson-ish hard swing with Bill Evans-like introspection.” Miwa has honed one of the most musical trio sounds on the jazz scene, playing regularly at major jazz clubs worldwide including
Jazz at Lincoln Center, NYC's Blue Note Jazz Club, and Blues Alley. Miwa has performed & recorded with a wide range of jazz greats including Sheila Jordan, Slide Hampton, Arturo Sandoval, George Garzone, Jon Faddis, Jerry Bergonzi, Esperanza Spalding, Terri Lyne Carrington, Kevin Mahogany, John Lockwood and Johnathan Blake. Miwa’s story of becoming a jazz musician is full of serendipity and happy twists of fate. In the late 1990s the classically-trained artist auditioned for Berklee on a lark and won a full scholarship.
