Album Description

Meg Okura's first large chamber ensemble album, showcasing seven cross-cultural compositions, drawing upon her memories from Japan, Jewish faith, and motherhood. “(IMA IMA) will please the most critical listeners… will not leave them feeling indifferent. The ensemble's music is extremely refined- a great synthesis of academic traditions and real improvisational jazz.” – Leonid Ausken, Jazz Quad

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
