Since graduating from Berklee College of Music, Japanese pianist Chihiro Yamanaka has been racking up the accolades as a top tier musician and composer. A Universal Music recording artist, Yamanaka’s music pivots between original compositions and her unique presentation of standards. Her latest album, Because, is a tribute to The Beatles’ catalog and turns songs such as “Yesterday” and “Michelle” into expressions of herself. This is Yamanaka’s second Kuumbwa appearance in as many years, signifying her rise towards the top of the contemporary jazz scene.
