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. She’s still enriching Boston’s musical life and serves as one of the most popular professors in the Berklee piano department.
