Chihiro Yamanaka  _La samba des prophetes
on stage_
Live concert at the Bravo Caffè, Italy - October 2011

Twelve released albums with the prestigious Verve Records, best pianist in Japan and acclaimed in the U.S., Chihiro Yamanaka has emerged as one of the most important pianists of the contemporary jazz scene. Born in Tokyo, she is now living in New York, where she has studied at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. Swing, rhythm and an infinite carousel of never banal solutions, all topped off with incredible piano technique and impeccable style. Her great sense of melody, the result of her prolonged stay in Brazil opened the doors to bossa nova.
The song composed by the italian composer Aldo Romano presented here is taken from a live concert at the Bravo Caffè, one of the most important venues in Bologna, Italy, for those who love live music.
