Ayako Shirasaki
Ayako Shirasaki presents her newest CD Falling Leaves—Live in Hamburg to her home audience all over Japan in April 2012.

Falling Leaves really garnered the attention of the media:

“Shirasaki is the complete package, possessing commanding technique that comes from a classical foundation but works in complete service of jazz, and she marries her heart and head with her hands throughout Falling Leaves—Live In Hamburg." —-Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz

“Shirasaki demonstrates substantial range... excellent concert..." —Don Lerman, Cadence

“Shirasaki's flawless navigation of Sonny Rollin's arduous “Airegin" is an attention grabber," —Mark Holston, JAZZIZ

The now New York, USA based Ayako Shirasaki is not moving back to Japan full time, as hoped for the fans by the Japan Times, but playing a tour giving the fans “improvisation at the highest level" as lately being put by a German Jazz Magazine.
