AJF Presents: In the Tradition with Yuko Mabuchi and Carl Anthony
August 3 @ 7:30 pm
Join us for an engaging conversation between pianist Yuko Mabuchi and jazz personality Carl Anthony.
A classically trained pianist, Yuko Mabuchi started playing piano at the age of 4, in her hometown of Fukui, Japan. As a teenager she was fascinated by American R&B, Hip-Hop, and Blues. After hearing the music of some of the Jazz greats, she fell in love with the genre and began studying jazz piano. She was soon performing locally as a soloist, and as a member of a local jazz trio.
Mabuchi has performed at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, opening for Branford Marsalis, Blues Alley in Washington DC as a guest of the National Cherry Blossom Japanese Jazz series, the Arlington Jazz Festival (Texas) and Disney Hall (LA), as featured pianist with ICYOLA, to name a few.
Her project, “The Yuko Mabuchi Trio” (Yarlung Records, 2017) was recorded LIVE at USCs Cammilleri Hall, and topped the audiophile charts. Her fourth project, “Tribute to Miles,” (Yarlung Records, 2019) has also been released on CD and vinyl.
