Mika Yoshida live in NY with Steve Gadd & Eddie Gomez, January 7th!

Marimba virtuoso Mika Yoshida will be doing a rare NY live performance (with a stellar cast that includes Steve Gadd, Eddie Gomez, Peter John Stoltzman -- replacing Warren Bernhardt -- and Richard Stoltzman) next January 7th @ Carnegie Hall's Zankel Hall. If you are in the NY area, don't miss the chance to see this extraordinary performer, who released one of the best DVDs of the year, "Marimba Madness." Tickets still available!

Mika met Steve Gadd in 2005 at PASIC 2005. Since then, they have become great friends and worked on various projects together. After playing live shows in Japan and in the USA, Mika released a live DVD ("Marimba Madness") and a studio album ("Mikarimba"), both produced by Gadd.
Presented by M's Company & Innsbruck Records

“In Japan, there is a high-wire jazz marimbist, Mika Yoshida. A recently released DVD, “Mika Marimba Madness” (what else?), of her in concert last year reveals an amazing, energetic performer ready for major exposure." (LA Times, Mark Swed)
