A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Patrice Williamson is a scintillating, soulful singer who swings hard and can scat with the best of them. She’s rightly been compared to Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan in publications such as the Los Angeles Times and The All-Music Guide to Jazz. A favorite of the Boston music scene, Patrice’s sensitive ballad work and fluent scat style have garnered invitations to perform most recently with Danilo Perez, Joe Lovano and Terri Lyne Carrington for the Berklee Global Jazz Institute. As an Associate Professor of Voice at Berklee College of Music, her work has taken her to Perugia, Italy, Seoul, South Korea, and India, where she performed with saxophonist Donald Harrison in the New Delhi Jazz Festival.

Both of her independent recordings, My Shining Hour and Free to Dream, have received high praise from jazz critics around the country. In 2014 she started The Ella Project, a multi-faceted tribute leading up to Ella Fitzgerald’s 100th birthday, including a concert series, biographical performance, and recordings, including the recently released Comes Love, an album celebrating the collaboration between Fitzgerald and legendary guitarist Joe Pass. Patrice received both her Master’s degree and an Artist Diploma from the famed New England Conservatory of Music. In addition to performing, Patrice is actively passing on her knowledge and love of the jazz tradition through teaching, ensuring that new generations will have an appreciation for this great American music.

Yoko Miwa Trio

Friday September 28th

For those who can't make it to the Jazz Baroness Room, Monkfish now streams live all of its performances on their Facebook page.

Yoko Miwa, piano

Brad Barrett, acoustic bass

Scott Goulding, drums

Miwa’s story of becoming a jazz musician is full of serendipity and happy twists of fate. In the late 1990s the classically-trained artist auditioned for Berklee College of Music on a lark and ended up winning a full scholarship. She arrived at the school from her homeland of Japan in 1997, intending to stay for a year.

In 2017, she’s still in Boston, enriching the city’s musical life and serving as one of the most popular professors in the Berklee piano department.

Act Naturally, the Yoko Miwa Trio’s major label debut in Japan, came out in 2012 on the JVC Victor Entertainment label and the band toured Japan that same year. “She is one of the best jazz pianists in Japan,” said Yozo Iwanami, Jazz Hihyo Magazine. A native of Kobe, Japan, Miwa was classically trained and didn’t pursue an interest in jazz until she met and studied with Minoru Ozone, a popular television organist and nightclub owner who is the father of pianist Makoto Ozone. Miwa worked at Ozone’s club and as an accompanist and piano instructor at his music school until the great Kobe earthquake of 1995 destroyed both facilities. Then, while continuing to take private lessons from Minoru Ozone, she also pursued musical studies at the Koyo Conservatory in Kobe. From there she won first prize in a scholarship competition to attend Berklee. Miwa quickly began playing with a host of talented students and teachers, and she formed a strong bond with vocal great Kevin Mahogany, who chose the pianist to serve as accompanist in his classes and on his gigs.

Andy took up the saxophone in grade school band and never looked back. Moving to Boston to attend Berklee College of music, Andy stayed in Boston and continued his education on the bandstand. Andy was a pivotal member of the Matt Murphy’s Music in Brookline having both co-lead the weekly jam session and lead his own original groups at Matts - during the heyday of one of Boston’s most notable music scenes. Presently Andy is playing and recording with Clear Audience – a group he co-leads with his cohorts from the Murphy’s days. Andy is staying busy as one of Boston’s real deal jazz Saxophonists, hard at work performing around the greater Boston areas music venues bringing his forward thinking, soulful sound, and thoughtful improvisations to the present day music appreciators.
