Born: November 26
Miho Nobuzane hails from Osaka, Japan, and was a classical piano major in college in Japan. It was after graduation that she became inspired by jazz, studied and started performing jazz, Brazilian music and more in clubs in Japan. She arrived in New York in 1996 when she began playing in every imaginable stylistic situation. Now several years later you can find her in local venues and traveling the world.
On March.2007, Miho produced her debut album Make YOU Happy-Super grooving Brazilian Jazz for making everyone happy! Miho's music has been played some radio stations in Australia, Latin America, Europe, and USA(includes WBGO 88.3FM). La gua gua radiomix 89.1FM in Buenos Aires, Argentina had the Miho Nobuzane Brazilian jazz special and played Miho's music for 30min- 7tunes....
Make YOU Happy is an impressive release, in which Nobuzane deftly demonstrates well-honed skills as a pianist, composer, and arranger. No doubt she would be a powerful contributor as soloist and accompanist in almost any situation. With the wealth of well-crafted music on this album, and that it represents but her first release, the door has been opened … and we can look optimistically toward the abundance of music yet to come from Miho Nobuzane.
