Saki Kono will sing Jazz interpretations of Japanese songs from her newly released CD Dream Passage, and Jazz standards with Ben Stolorow on piano, Peter Barshay on bass, and Vince Lateano on drums.
Saki is a jazz vocalist, composer, lyricist, and arranger who creates music inspired by her Japanese background and has a love for jazz standards. She may be shy, but she likes to have fun, to experiment with different ideas through arrangements, and to let people experience her musical vision. In addition to many classic standards, her repertoire includes pop songs and jazz arrangements of Japanese songs.
Born in Kyoto and raised in Tokyo, Saki currently calls the San Francisco Bay Area home. She has performed at many Jazz clubs in Tokyo, and has toured Japan with Akira Tana and Otonowa in the Tohoku region, which suffered severe damage from the disastrous 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
