Award-winning, pianist, composer, and educator Jason Yeager creates music that is deeply expressive, forward-looking and multi-faceted, defying convention while also embracing the rich traditions of jazz, the blues, the Great American Songbook, western classical music, and West African and Latin American rhythms.  Originally from Framingham, MA and now based in New York City, Yeager is a recording artist on Inner Circle Music, where he has released three albums of original music to wide acclaim, including Ruminations (2011) and Affirmation (2014) with his eponymous trio.  In 2017, Yeager and violin/mandolin virtuoso Jason Anick released United, which received a glowing 4.5-star review in Downbeat Magazine.  His forthcoming album with composer-saxophonist Randal Despommier, entitled “All At Onceness,” will be released in 2018.

Yeager has been touted as “an incredible composer and musician…[who] surprises you like a thunderbolt” by renowned pianist/composer and MacArthur Grant recipient Ran Blake.  He has performed and recorded with such noteworthy artists as Blake, Ayn Inserto, George Garzone, Jason Palmer, and Sara Serpa, and has played at such venues as the Blue Note and Smalls in New York, the Regattabar in Boston, and Thelonious in Buenos Aires.  A an educator, Yeager has been on the piano faculty at Berklee College of Music since 2012, when at age 25 he became one of the school’s youngest instructors. In 2014, he won the Hot House Jazz Fans Decision Awards for best pianist and best organist.  A classically-trained pianist, Yeager graduated from the Tufts University/New England Conservatory Double Degree Program (summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, Pi Kappa Lambda), earning degrees in International Relations and Jazz Piano Performance.  At NEC, he studied with Danilo Perez, Fred Hersch, Ran Blake, Frank Carlberg, Jerry Bergonzi, John McNeil, and Jerry Leake.

Yoko Miwa Trio

08:00 PM - 11:00 PMYoko Miwa, pianoJohn Lockwood, acoustic bassScott 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.
