Takana Miyamoto is a multi award-winning, internationally acclaimed concert pianist, composer and music producer. She bases herself in USA and Japan, and has traveled and performed in 25 countries worldwide including North and South Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Her new trio album 'On My Way' will be released this month, featuring Matt Penman on bass and Ulysses Owens on drums. The album features her originals as well as the works by great pianists/composers Burt Bacharach, Bill Evans and Oscar Peterson.

Atlanta-based trumpet man Russell Gunn will join Miyomoto's Trio for this gig, which is not to be missed.

So bag the traffic jam and come by the High Museum.  Enjoy jazz music and also the High's current exhibit Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis

Takana stopped by WCLK to talk on the air with Nicole about her trio, her new record, and her new baby, as well as the great show people can hear Friday night At The High.
