G.G. Groovin’ Girls Jazz Trio Concert

Printer-friendly view of this page.
The Japan-America Society of Greater Austin (JASGA) presents a jazz concert in Austin with three Japanese jazz players, alumnae of the Berklee College of Music, on Monday, March 21, 2016.  They are currently living in Tokyo, New York, and Austin.  JASGA is delighted to host their concert of creative, organic, and relaxing jazz music.

Takana Miyamoto (P), Noriko Ueda (B), and Masumi Jones (Ds) formed a jazz piano trio called Groovin’ Girls (G.G.) in Boston.  After the release of their first album, Piece of Cake, the group separated, making their way to Georgia, New York and Texas. After 15 years building their careers as musicians, the three members reunited at a studio in Tokyo in the summer of 2014. Rather than having lengthy conversations, they instantly started recording, reuniting and bonding together through their music. Their new album Ruby Road is a precious compilation; although each track has a theme, the recording focuses more on the trio’s performance and sounds.
