Chihiro Yamanaka in Concert

CHIHIRO YAMANAKA, Universal Classics & Jazz recording artist, is one of the most exciting jazz pianists and composers of her generation, and the leader of the CHIHIRO YAMANAKA TRIO.

CHIHIRO YAMANAKA'S latest CD,"Forever Begins" (Universal/Verve), featuring bassist Ben Williams and drummer Kendrick Scott, was released in Japan in late 2010, and its United States and Europe release is planned for early 2011. Based in New York City, her international concert appearances have included Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, JVC Jazz Festival New York, Umbria Jazz Festival, Tokyo Jazz Festival, the Vienna State Opera House, and major jazz clubs all over the world.

The CHIHIRO YAMANAKA TRIO has featured some of the finest talent in jazz, including bassists Larry Grenadier and Bob Hurst and drummers Jeff"Tain" Watts and Jeff Ballard. In addition to her work as a bandleader, her in-demand status has led to concert appearances with Herbie Hancock, George Benson, Nancy Wilson, Clark Terry, Gary Burton, George Russell, Terry Lynne Carrington, DIVA and many more.

Chihiro's impact on the international jazz scene was uncannily foreshadowed by the successes she had while still in college, first at the Royal Academy of Music in England and then at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she won Down Beat's Outstanding Performance Award and was honored by the International Association of Jazz Educators with her victory in the prestigious"Sisters In Jazz" competition in 2000.
