Maiko's Bluesette

Maiko is an award winning jazz violinist from Kobe who has been performing professionally for about ten years in Japan. A graduate of the Kyoto University of Arts she has played violin since the age of three.

This arrangement warms up gradually, and it's worth the wait. In addition to Maiko's musical excursions on violin, the piano and bass solos are excellent (how often can one honestly say the "bass solo was awesome?"). And while the drummer doesn't have a solo, he adds just the right beat and accents for the rest of the quartet.
