Kei Akagi Trio+

Kei AkagiOn Feb. 19 and 20, I have the privilege and pleasure of joining concerts at UC Irvine with a trio led by Kei Akagi, an outstanding pianist with a long and deep history in the jazz world including work as a sideman with Miles Davis, Stanley Turrentine and so many others. Kei has worked in a trio format for over 20 years with the other two fantastic musicians on these concerts, bassist Darek Oles and drummer Jason Harnell. The concert will feature Kei’s own music as well as other musicians who worked with Miles Davis. [Photo by Skye Schmidt]
