Tokyo-born composer Miho Hazama, who recently wowed the audience at an Artists Without Walls’ Showcase, will be appearing at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, Broadway and 60th St, 5th floor, in New York City on January 25th, where she will be performing sets at 7:30 and 9:30pm.
Miho is one of New York’s most distinctive young talents. Lauded in DownBeat as one of “25 for the Future,” Miho is a classically-trained, jazz-oriented pianist with a bold and unique compositional voice. Her 13-piece jazz chamber orchestra m_unit includes strings, horns, woodwinds, and a piano/bass/drums rhythm section. The group moves fluidly through a distinct hybrid of big band jazz, contemporary classical music, and pop that gives ample attention to both swinging jazz solo sections and sweeping, through-written passages that make full use of the eclectic instrumentation. The music is well-written and full of surprises, the musicians are spectacular, and it’s all much more widely accessible than it might sound on paper, particularly for listeners without a lot of experience with jazz.
Don’t miss her debut performance at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. There is a $30 cover charge and you can make reservations by calling 212-258-9595 or in person after 6pm daily at the club.
