Sumi Tonooka has been called a “fierce and fascinating composer and pianist” (JazzTimes), “provocative and compelling” (The New York Times), and “continually inventive, original, surprising, and a total delight,” (Cuadranos de Jazz, Madrid). During a career spanning more than thirty years that has taken her from bases in Philadelphia and Boston, to New York and Seattle, Tonooka has been developing a body of work that surprises and delights audiences — quietly piling up accolades from jazz writers and fellow musicians. In addition to her symphonic and chamber works, jazz recordings and performances, Tonooka has composed over twenty film scores. Tonooka will be joined on this concert date by trumpeter Samantha Boshnack, saxophonist Erica Lindsay, multi-instrumentalist Salim Washington, trombonist Michael Ventoso, bassist Gregg August, and drummer Jonathan Blake.
