  • This video features the Toshiko Akiyoshi Jazz Orchestra in concert playing original compositions in a richly creative style that captures the feeling of traditional big band music. Led by composer/arranger/pianist Akiyoshi, the group includes the brilliant principal soloist Lew Tabackin on flute and saxophone. Earlier in her career, Akiyoshi worked with Oscar Peterson and Charlie Mingus before joining up with Tabackin in the 1970s to form the Orchestra. Drawing upon divergent influences, the sixteen-piece band combines western bebop with Japanese folk music to arrive at its own jivin' jazz sound.
