Critically acclaimed pianist and JVC Victor Entertainment Recording Artist Yoko Miwa has spent the past decade honing one of the most musical trio sounds on the jazz scene. Miwa is an artist with a unique sound, style and meaning to her fans. In addition to being voted Best Jazz Act by the Boston Phoenix in the 2012 Best Music Poll, The Yoko Miwa Trio made their Blue Note NYC debut in 2014 to rave reviews.

The Yoko Miwa Trio released their major label debut CD in Japan titled Act Naturally on the JVC Victor Entertainment label in 2012 and she toured Japan with her trio that same year to rave reviews. “She is one of the best jazz pianists in Japan,” said Yozo Iwanami, Jazz Hihyo Magazine. She was rescently appointed as a full-time Professor at Berklee College of Music. She has played sold out shows in NYC and Boston, and she was chosen to play a special concert, Marian McPartland & Friends at Dizzy’s at Lincoln Center, as part of The Coca-Cola Generations in Jazz Festival.

Miwa has recorded six CDs to date. Her trio's fifth CD, Live at Scullers Jazz Club, was described as "picture perfect" by Marc Myers on JazzWax, who goes on to say, "Also worth noting are Miwa's originals Mr. B.G. and Silent Promise which build with passion and grace." The CD was chosen as among the Best CDs of 2011 by JazzTimes.

“Pianist Yoko Miwa displays unpretentious melodies, elegant phrasing, and the lyrical sensibility of a jazz poet.” - Jazziz Magazine  WATCH NOW
