So who is Keiko Matsui? Here's a picture of her below:
^ from: lansingcitypulse.com - Keiko Matsui's brand of smooth jazz also features elements of new age. She is one of my personal favorites in the realm of jazz for her beautiful piano songs.
Keiko's piano music is (for lack of a better term) music to your ears. You will hear some lovely background instruments playing, but the real star of her songs is her piano music. It has the power to move you and tap into your soul. You feel an elevated state of karma and peace as you hear her play the piano and with the other instruments providing a beautiful touch. Keiko's piano playing is the main course while the extra instrumentals are appetizers that leads to the main course served up by Keiko Matsui. She is the pitcher delivering strikes of awesome music while the other players help aid in run support.
I have only bought three of her CDs. If I can find them on Amazon, I'll share with you the ones that I have (and that you can buy if you like them too). I have "Collections," "Whisper in the Mirror," and "The Ring." I think while "Collections" is a great album, you don't get to hear too much of Keiko's piano play. The other two albums I have feature more of her amazing play. And I think over time, her music moved away from traditional smooth jazz to more natural and new age-style music.
