Chihiro Yamanaka Trio


Japanese- born, New York City-based pianist Chihiro Yamanaka is one of her native country’s most popular and we are very excited to welcome her to London’s most famous jazz club, Ronnie Scott’s. She has recorded twenty albums principally for the Verve/Universal label, many of which have featured US heavyweights such as bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts with one reviewer commenting that “Yamanaka is a fierce talent with robust chops, plenty of soul, and a seemingly endless imagination” On top of her light-speed virtuosity, Yamanaka has an irresistible swing to her playing; of one performance American publication Jazz Times likened her to “Mulgrew Miller on classically trained steroids… right and left, jaws were dropping”. Highly recommended for anyone interested in straight-ahead jazz.
