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. The freshness of both her compositions and the trio's vibrant interplay has caught the ears of many listeners around the world. The trio, featuring drummer/percussionist Marilyn Mazur (Miles Davis Group 85-89, Jan Garbarek Group 91-05) and bassist Klavs Hovman has been her main focus in the recent years, where she established her unique voice through performances at international jazz festivals and venues around Europe and 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.
