Miho Nobuzane hails from Osaka, Japan, and was a classical piano major in college in Japan. It was after graduation that she became inspired by jazz, studied and started performing jazz, Brazilian music and more in clubs in Japan. She arrived in New York in 1996 when she began playing in every imaginable stylistic situation. Now several years later you can find her in local venues and traveling the world.
wonderfully lyrical pianist, impressive technical skills at the piano, rhythmic
flexibility and inventive
Make YOU Happy is an impressive release, in which Nobuzane deftly
well-honed skills as a pianist, composer, and arranger. No doubt she would
be a powerful
contributor as soloist and accompanist in almost any situation. With the
well-crafted music on this album, and that it represents but her first release,
the door has
been opened … and we can look optimistically toward the abundance of
music yet to come
from Miho Nobuzane.
