Yoko Suzuki Trio
Thursday, July 19th
If you have been coming to our jazz programs this past year, chances are you heard Yoko Suzuki on the alto saxophone. She has appeared with Roger Humphries & RH Factor, as well as will Etta Cox. This concert marks her debut at City of Asylum @ Alphabet City as a bandleader of her own trio.
In addition to Yoko, the trio features organist Cliff Barns and drummer James Johnson III. They will play a mix of Yoko’s original songs and jazz standards.
A musician known both locally and nationally, and an ethnomusicologist, Yoko’s playing is deeply informed by jazz across the globe, especially Japan where she trained. During the concert, we look forward to her sharing this rich history in both her music and her comments.alphabet city, city of asylum
