Yoko returns to the Regattabar on May 15!
It’s time for the Yoko Miwa Trio’s annual show at the Regattabar, one of the Boston area’s most famous jazz clubs. The show is at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, May 15. One set only, so get your tickets NOW. The show is usually very packed. The trio has some special music planned for the evening, too.
“Harvard Square is one of my favorite places,” said Yoko. “There are always interesting people hanging out; such a scene of eclectic street musicians! And let’s not forget all the great food. The Regattabar is one of my favorite jazz venues. It’s a special room to play in and to hear music in. I saw so many legends perform there: Elvin Jones, Cedar Walton, McCoy Tyner, Billy Higgins, Hank Jones, Tony Williams, Mulgrew Miller, and Clark Terry, to name just a few. To say the least, lots of good notes have been played in this room and you can feel that legacy every time you walk into the club.”
Here are some photos by Caroline Alden from last year’s show:
I saw Elvin Jones at the Regattabar too! He was great.
I saw Elvin with several different pianists: George Cables, Eric Lewis, Anthony Wonsey. Once, Elvin took 8 measures of solo on the bridge of “It Don’t Mean a Thing” and the whole band got lost 🙂
I would have love to have seen that!
