Akiko and the World of Jazz


New album coming soon from Japanese female jazz innovator Akiko! "Little Miss Jazz And Jive Goes Around The World" shows Akiko's take on 40s era American jive standards . . . of course taking along her unique twist of sweet vocal jazz, modern instrumentation (offen with turntables), and just straight up cool. This is the girl who reinvigorated the Japanese bossa nova sound, turned jazz on its head with her album "Mood Swings," and gave Yoko Kanno a run for her money as hippest Japanese jazz artist.

New album comes out November 23. Preorder now!
