Toshiko Akiyoshi is one of the premier composers of contemporary big band music. Her Japanese heritage can be heard along with her love of Bud Powell in her fresh approach that has famously challenged big bands for decades.
The Gift of Jazz is partnering with Denver’s 18-piece Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra in presenting an evening of her unique, while always swinging music.
