Aoki-san is originally from Osaka, Japan.
He is one of Tokyo's most sought-after accompanists for vocalists. His sensitivity, timing, and rhythmic swing are hard to beat.
Versatile, he plays original music, Jazz Standards, Blues, Japanese Music, all with his signature Jazz-Blues-Swinging style.
I have worked with Aoki-san in Tokyo, for 20 years!
As a pianist, he swings hard, is innovative; his musicality both supports and inspires fantastic performances, of all co-members of a gig.
He is a long time friend and valued fellow musician.
