Acclaimed pianist Keiko matsui took a break from recording after her 2007 release “Moyo” but she has been out there sharing her incredible sound with fans all over the world. She has now returned with “The Road…” on Shanachie Records. This is an incredible work with spiritual and passionate harmonies that have come out of Matsui’s embracing a new journey. She has worked with everyone from Kirk Whalum, Bob James, Hugh Masekala... and Richard Bona during her 24 year career and has been playing the piano since she was 5 years old. Giving back is important for this Tokyo native who was a part of the recording to support the Japan relief effort after the devastating tsunami with the “Jazz for Japan.” She has also been selfless in her efforts to support breast cancer awareness by performing benefits for the and Susan G. Komen Foundations as well as releasing a 4 song CD entitled Á Gift Of Hope” that benefited the Y-Me Breast Cancer Organization. Just this month her 4 Hand Piano Project with Bob James entitled "Altair & Vega" was released.
We cannot wait to talk to the incredibly gifted Keiko Matsui and learn more about all that keeps her going spiritually and musically.

Join us for a Cool Jazz Conversation with Keiko Matusi at 7pm Eastern
