Newton Piano Summit: George Russell Jr. & Yoko Miwa
George Russell Jr., currently Chair of the Harmony Department at the Berklee College of Music, will often refer to himself as “a drummer who happens to plays the piano.” This is made clear when you hear the strong sense of rhythm that envelops his each and every performance.
Internationally acclaimed pianist/composer Yoko Miwa is quickly becoming known as one of the most powerful and compelling performers on the scene today. Her trio – with its remarkable telepathy and infectious energy – has brought audiences to their feet worldwide. Pathways (2017), her seventh album as a leader, spent 4 weeks on the Jazz Week top 10 radio charts and has earned wide critical acclaim.
