Miho Nobuzane

A stellar pianist, keyboardist, composer, and vocalist Miho Nobuzane was born in Osaka, Japan, where she majored in classical piano during college. She arrived in New York in 1996, where she began playing in wide variety of styles, including jazz, Brazilian, R&B, African fusion, and latin jazz. These days you can find her in major New York City venues such as Blue Note, Kitano NY, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Joe's Pub, SOB's - as well as touring the world.  In March.2007, Miho released her debut album MAKE YOU HAPPY - Brazilian Jazz - for making everyone happy! Her music has been played on radio stations in Australia, Latin America, Europe, and the United States (including WBGO 88.3FM) "La gua gua" radiomix 89.1FM in Buenos Aires, Argentina aired the Miho Nobuzane Brazilian jazz special broadcast and played Miho's music for 30 minutes. In December 2007, MAKE YOU HAPPY was named one of the Top 10 CDs of the year by Saul Zavarce, the on-air presenter and producer of "Fiesta Jazz" (PBS FM106.7 in Australia), and by New York jazz writer Joe Bendel on the blog, J.B. Spins. 
Jazz Improv magazine’s March 2008 issue reviewed her CD, with jazz critic Clive Griffin writing: “MAKE YOU HAPPY” is an impressive release, in which Nobuzane deftly demonstrates well-honed skills as a pianist, composer, and arranger. No doubt she would be a powerful contributor as soloist and accompanist in almost any situation. With the wealth of well-crafted music on this album . . . the door has been opened … we can look optimistically toward the abundance of music yet to come from Miho Nobuzane.” In the same issue, her upcoming Blue Note NY show was also selected by the magazine as the noteworthy performance of the month.
In September 2009, Miho and her own trio "Miho Nobuzane Brazilian Jazz Group" was invited as a musical guest of a music TV program "The Jump" which was broadcast by Time Werner Cable in New York. She played and sang some of her original tunes.
As a sideperson, she has played and/or recorded with the legendary drummer Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, Grammy Award winner and Paul Simon’s bassist Bakithi Kumalo, COLOR PURPLE Tony Award nominee and Blue Note recording artist Elisabeth Withers, the award winning Brazilian band Grupo Saveiro, Cafe,  Sergio Brandao, and many more. 
As a Transcriber, she prepared the music sheets for Elisabeth Withers, the Rhythm Nation band, Burt Conrad All Stars, Jerry Elcock, Abdou Mboup & Waakaw, Raquel Lima, Nanny Assis, and many more.
Currently, Miho is recording two of Bernard Purdie’s albums, and also planning for her second album.
