akiko - Where Hearts Were Entertaining June


Little Miss Jazz and Jive is back with her first full-length album in over a year, "Vida."

As one of the top names in the Japanese vocal jazz circuit, akiko has made a name for herself through constantly weaving modern tones of funk, rock, and hip hop into a base of classic jazz sounds ranging from bebop to swing. For her new album "Vida," akiko travelled to Brasil in order to perform with several of the top names in the Brazillian music world. This time around she's setting out for a relaxing, lohas brand of acoustic soul paired with her more aggressive, progressive, and danceable original tracks.

akiko's new album comes out April 25 with a tracklist spanning seven akiko-original songs and Brasillian standards. Order now!
