Arbors, 2003, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Michiko plays piano, sings and leads her trio plus one. Phil Flanigan (b), Ed Metz Jr. (d) and special guest Harry Allen (sax). We like the instrumentals best, especially those featuring Allen’s wispy tenor sax. “You Brought A New Kind of Love to Me” and “I Wish Those Days Were Back Again” are prime examples.
