Akiko/Hamilton/Dechter is an organ trio featuring Akiko Tsuruga, Jeff Hamilton, and Graham Dechter. Akiko, an energetic organist from Japan, has joined forces with veteran jazz drummer Hamilton and guitarist Dechter in this hard-swining group. They invite the listener into their realm of how they feel about music…that it should always be a joyous occasion. The group plays to make each other sound as good as they can possibly sound, and certainly succeeds.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
