Keiko Matsui - Euphoria
Keiko Matsui Euphoria Shanachie Entertainment

Now in her fourth decade as a contemporary jazz icon and perhaps the genre’s most impactful global and charitable ambassador, keyboardist/composer Keiko Matsui titled her epic, wondrously exotic and wildly eclectic 30th album EUPHORIA after the wonderful feeling she gets when she witnesses how her classical and new aged influenced Smooth Jazz connects people around the world. Packed with luminescent melodies and rhythmic influences from around the globe, the visionary artist engages in jazz fusion, a prayerful meditation, an R&B anthem with Lalah Hathaway, a snazzy tango, a playful romp to Paraguay and a track she calls her “jazz symphony” featuring vibes player Joel Ross. She invites a handful of jazz legends along on the incredible journey, including Kirk Whalum, Mike Stern, Randy Brecker and John Beasley.
