”wonderfully lyrical pianist, impressive technical skills at the piano, rhythmic flexibility and inventive solos”
”Make YOU Happy is an impressive release, in which Nobuzane deftly demonstrates well-honed skills as a pianist, composer, and arranger.

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.”
