The Checkout Live at Berklee: Chihiro Yamanaka

Event Date: 
Thursday, October 18, 2012 - 8:00pm

New York's WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM and NPRmusic proudly present year two of The Checkout Live at Berklee. Critically acclaimed, New York-based performers return to their Berklee roots and perform for the world from Boston's Cafe 939.

Chihiro Yamanaka, Universal Classics and Jazz recording artist and Berklee alumna, is one of the most exciting jazz pianists and composers of her generation, and the leader of the Chihiro Yamanaka Trio.
Her music pivots between her strikingly original compositions and her unique arrangements of standards, in which she accomplishes the impressive feat of introducing the element of surprise into some of the most famous songs in the standard jazz repertoire.

Yamanaka “tore into two originals at the top of her set, sounding a bit like Mulgrew Miller on classically trained steroids, and with a progressive bent. When she announced 'Take Five,' the crowd let out a gleeful 'ahh'—but they weren’t ready for the voracious re-harmonization, full of upward-creeping bass lines and chromatic descents, or her mid-song interpolation of 'In Your Own Sweet Way,' retrofitted in 5/4 time. Right and left, jaws were dropping." – Jazz Times, Giovanni Russonello

Admission: $10, $5 with Berklee ID

See the action video streamed live worldwide at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time on NPRmusic.org, and hear it in New York on WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM or wbgo.org. You can also listen to every show anytime after its airdate archived at Checkoutjazz.org and NPRmusic.org.
