Akiko Tsuruga    She’s “Sweet and Funky,” she’s “Cute and Bad”.  She’s a Composer and a performer extraordinaire.  The legendary Dr. Lonnie Smith said this:  “Akiko’s playing is like watching a flower blooming, a bird spreading her wings…  Akiko is here to stay.”

Jeff Hamilton   has lead small and large groups and excelled on the international stage.  Perhaps the best drummer of his generation – he’s  recorded with giants like Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Diana Krall, Milt Jackson, and is co-leader of the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra.

Graham Dechter  “Dechter is one of those young phenoms who is jazz mature beyond his years.”  – Kyle O’Brien (Jazz Society of Oregon).  Graham really swings, and he just keeps getting better and better.
This is indeed, a unique trio which will deliver a dynamic and memorable evening!
