AKIYOSHI TOSHIKO (P) akiyoshi

Dairen, Manciuria. 12/12/29.

Avviata agli studi classici e arrivata in Giappone ed ha scoperto il Jazz. Su consiglio di Hampton Hawes e di Oscar Peterson si è trasferita negli Stati Uniti dove ha registrato un disco nel 1954 con la supervisione di Norman Granz. Nel 1956 si è iscritta alla Berklee School of Music, mentre ha ottenuto da George Wein la scrittura allo Storyville Club e la partecipazione al Festival di Newport. Raggiunto il successo, ha messo su un suo gruppo ed in seguito anche una sua grande orchestra. E’ stata la moglie prima di Charlie Mariano e successivamente di Lew Tabackin. E’ la migliore musicista giapponese della sua generazione, pianista influenzata da Bud Powell, ha maturato e ha acquisito una propria identità. Solista dal tocco energico, ma nello stesso tempo poetico, stesse doti che riversa nelle composizioni e nell’arrangiamento per orchestra che gestisce con Lew Tabackin, Per un certo periodo degli anni ’70-’80 la sua orchestra è stata una delle migliori del circuito. A lei è stato dedicato un film “Jazz Is My Native Language” del 1984.
