Big Round Records is proud to present MIKA MARIMBA MADNESS: LIVE IN CONCERT 2009, featuring a breathtaking performance from Japan’s virtuoso marimbist Mika (Yoshida) Stoltzman alongside drummer Steve Gadd, bassist Eddie Gomez, and pianist Peter Stoltzman.
Praised for her “quiet strength” (DownBeat) and “high-wire” energy (LA Times), Mika’s playing is tight, expressive, and virtuosic. Mika-along with Gadd and Gomez, who easily live up to their reputations-is able to navigate arrangements of tunes by jazz greats including Chick Corea, Bill Douglas, and Billy Strayhorn with panach.
