The daughter of famed jazz musicians Toshiko Akiyoshi and Charlie Mariano and stepdaughter of venerable flautist Lew Tabackin, Monday Michiru easily adapted the language of jazz heard at home into her other musical influences, which range from soul to urban club to Brazilian and more.

Her upcoming performance at Birdland commemorates the release of her latest album, Naked Breath 2. Joining Monday onstage are Misha Tsiganov on piano, Boris Kozlov on bass, Keita Ogawa on drums, and special guest Sumie Kaneko on koto.
