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.
Joining Monday at Birdland are Freddie Bryant on guitar, Misha Tsiganov on piano, Fima Ephron on bass, and Adriano Santos on drums.
