About Asako Takasaki; Born in Toyama, Japan, Asako fell in love with Jazz when she was 20 years old. She was encouraged by her long time mentor Hirotaka Izumi to start singing and her first professional engagement was to sing the Japanese National Anthem on Nippon Broadcasting Inc of Japan. She fell in love with jazz and hasn’t looked back. Moving to New York City in 2004, Asako has been on the scene ever since and also recently started to study with Concord Recording Artist Karrin Allyson. “All of Me” marks her first recording and features some great standards with lovely arrangements and a stellar band.
