Description

The first Fall show, scheduled for September 29, will be a trio featuring pianist, Miki Yamanaka, with Desmond White on bass and Kush Abadey on drums. This will be a CD release show for Miki Yamanaka’s new record, “Miki”. Miki Yamanaka is a New York-based pianist from Kobe, Japan. She moved to New York City in 2012 and has studied piano with Jason Lindner, Jeb Patton, and Fred Hersch, and organ with Sam Yahel and Larry Goldings. In 2015 she was one of three pianists selected to participate in “Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead”, an intensive composition residency at the Kennedy Center. She recently earned her Master of Music degree from Queens College, receiving the Sir Roland Hanna Award. She has been known as one of the busiest pianists in her generation. Miki has appeared in concert with many notable musicians including Steve Nelson (who will be joining her on September 29), Seamus Blake, Jerry Dodgion, Victor Lewis, Rich Perry, Antonio Hart and Peter Bernstein. Miki recorded a mini album called "Songs Without Lyrics" in 2012, and has recently recorded a brand new album, “Miki” with Steve Nelson, Orlando le Fleming, and Bill Stewart in 2017, which will be released by Canadian label, "Cellar Live". The release of “Miki” will be celebrated at the September 29 event at FLEMINGTON DIY.
