Akane Matsumoto: Night and Day

Fun and happy bebop jazz in the style of Oscar Peterson and Phineas Newborn Junior, this is a record of solid jazz piano. Professional arrangements performed by highly-skilled musicians (her “New York Trio” backup band joins her on this release) deliver a quality jazz piano album with material ranging from amazing quick-tempo tunes to slower, romantic brush-stroke ballads.
