The concert was great! We had a table for 7 people. Our names were on the list and we went in without any problems. We got a great table with a perfect view of the musicians.

More Information


Pianist Keiko Matsui is an icon of contemporary jazz. With over 1.2 million units sold in the U.S. alone and sold-out appearances at concert halls across the world, she is one of the most recognized artists in the genre. Her elegant piano melodies and gentle jazz grooves have enormous appeal and never disappoint her loyal fan base, which she has cultivated with over 20 albums and hundreds of stunning live shows.

Counting artists as diverse as Stevie Wonder, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Frederic Chopin, Maurice Jarre, and Chick Corea among her influences, Matsui released her first album, A Drop of Water_, in the US in 1987. Her albums Sapphire_ (1995), _Dream Walk , and Deep Blue_ (2001) all broke into the Top 10 on _Billboard’_s weekly Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, and she was named _Billboard_’s No. 3 Top Contemporary Jazz Artist for 1997. Her releases after the turn of the millennium, including _The Ring _(2002) and _Wildflower _(2004), revealed a broadening of her stylistic scope as they dabbled in world and classical music.

In addition to being a world-renowned musician, Matsui is also an active humanitarian, supporting the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization, the National Marrow Foundation, the United Nations World Food Programme, and efforts to provide relief to Japan after the recent earthquake and tsunami. After a brief hiatus from recording at the end of the last decade, she released her latest album, _The Road, _early in 2011.
