Aki Yashiro / First US Live in 30 Years
Aki Yashiro will be performing at a renowned jazz landmark club as a jazz singer in collaboration with Helen Merrill, whom she respects greatly. Her previous jazz album “Yoru no Album” released on October, 2012 set a new record as a big hit through which she made her world debut in 75 countries around the world.
Yashiro has already established herself as ‘the queen of enka,’ and now she is highly praised as a jazz singer not only in Japan alone, but in the US as well. For this special collaboration live, each Yashiro and Merrill will bring their own songs in addition to their duet performance. It will most definitely be one of a kind stage that any jazz fans would love to witness! Mark your calendars and come out to experience this wondrous night of an enchanting jazz collaboration of two top artists.
