Makiko Hirabayashi

Makiko Hirabayashi Trio released their third album, “Surely” on the German jazz label, Enja/Yellowbird in November, 2013. This time recorded in Munich while on tour in Germany, the album includes 13 original tracks, mostly composed by Makiko Hirabayashi, with a few contrasting compositions by Marilyn Mazur and some short improvised pieces.

Since the release of her trio album “Makiko” (Enja 2006), Makiko Hirabayashi has received critical acclaim both in Europe where she resides, and in her home country, Japan.

Their second album “Hide And Seek” (Enja 2009) received Jazz Audio Disk Award for Best Instrumental Album 2009 and Jazz Melody Award 2009 for its title tune in Jazz Critique Magazine, Japan....
