O’s Notes: Seasoned Japanese vocalist Akiko Aoki just released her second CD after 20 years of parenting and working. Her pursuit of dreams in realized on Pure Imagination backed by a strong team of musicians including pianist Tim Ray and tenor saxophonists Ken Peplowski & Mike Monaghan. We liked her takes of “No More Blues”, “Moondance”, “Just The Two of Us” and “Smile”. Aoki proves that life can be resurrected with change.
