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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
