“Miki Hayama is an amazing young pianist with great chops, a great harmonic concept and a great imagination!” —Kenny Barron

Don’t miss your chance to experience the enchanting music of GRAMMY-nominated jazz pianist Miki Hayama and her trio! On Tuesday, May 16, the trio will be performing live at the Zinc Bar. She’s supported by Moto Fukushima on bass and Allan Mednard on drums.

Pianist, keyboard player, arranger, and musical director, Miki Hayama hails from Kyoto, Japan but has made New York City her home.

With a degree in classical piano from the Osaka College of Music and jazz training from the renowned Sadayasu Fujii in Kyoto, Miki’s love for jazz led her to work at numerous jazz clubs in the Kansai area after graduation. But that was only the beginning of her journey.

In 2003, Miki set her sights on the Big Apple and has been wowing audiences with her amazing talent ever since. She has had the honor of sharing the stage and recordings with some of the greatest names in the jazz world, including Kenny Garrett, Aretha Franklin, and Christian McBride, just to name a few.

Miki’s own albums have also garnered much-deserved acclaim, with her 2006 release “Prelude to a Kiss” receiving a five-star rating in Swing Journal, and her 3rd studio album “Wide Angle” winning Swing Journal’s Gold Disc Award in March 2009.

Not content to rest on her laurels, Miki has also lent her musical expertise as a side person on various recordings, including Tia Fuller’s “Pillar of Strength” and Michael Dease Big Band’s “Relentless”. And if that wasn’t impressive enough, she also served as musical director, arranger, and keyboardist on Nnenna Freelon’s new studio album “Time Traveler”, which received a GRAMMY nomination and was released in May 2021.

It’s no wonder Miki Hayama is such a respected name on the jazz scene – her talent knows no bounds!
