Chihiro Yamanaka

Chihiro Yamanaka is a Japanese jazz pianist. My favorite song of hers is "I Will Wait." Chihiro Yamanaka is the only other Japanese jazz pianist I know of other than the beautiful Keiko Matsui. I have fondness of Japanese jazz, and not just from Gran Turismo jazz themes. I first heard of Chihiro-san when I was watching an online channel called iiV Channel with a program called "Jazz Up to Date."
