If you’re one of Stellina’s regular Tuesday night Jazz buffs, then this post is for you.
Yoko Miwa is one of the rising stars in the local jazz firmament, as evidenced by the following accolades:
“Yoko Miwa swings from both sides of the piano, and is blessed with a left hand that lends itself to a fully developed playing style that is reminiscent of early stride masters; a dominant strength, no doubt acquired through McCoy Tyner’s influence on Miwa, and also may be traced to be-bop genius, Thelonious Monk, who heavily influenced Tyner.”– review of her CD “Live At Sculler’s Jazz Club”
“Miwa possesses a fully-formed style and shuns flamboyance for substance, making every note count, despite a formidable technique that might tempt her to overplay.”– Jazztimes
