Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola

Akiko Tsuruga Trio

Album Release Celebration

With organist Akiko Tsuruga, guitarist Graham Dechter, and drummer Jeff Hamilton

“Akiko's playing is like watching a flower blooming, a bird spreading her wings in the music world. Akiko is here to stay.” – Legendary organist Dr. Lonnie Smith

Hammond B3 organist Akiko Tsuruga has been a regular on the New York jazz scene since her arrival in 2001. Almost immediately, she began working with artists like Jimmy Cobb, Frank Hess, and Lou Donaldson, whose quartet she joined in 2007. As a bandleader, she has toured internationally and released several acclaimed albums, garnering extensive radio play and “rising star” designations in DownBeat reader’s polls. Tonight, she celebrates the release of her latest album, featuring Graham Dechter and Jeff Hamilton. Dechter is an up-and-coming musician, making a name for himself as a straight-ahead jazz guitarist, and Hamilton is a veteran drummer and bandleader who will soon be headlining Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola again for a two-night run. Check them out at the club before Tsuruga’s new album takes over the airwaves.
