Tomoko Ohno, born in Tokyo, began piano studies at the age of 4. As a teenager, she began playing professionally in the Tokyo area jazz scene. After graduating from Rikkyo University in Law and Politics, Miss Ohno moved to the United States and entered the Jazz Studies Program at William Paterson University in New Jersey, where she studied with Harold Mabern and Rufus Reid. During this time she had the opportunity to perform with such artists as Jerome Richardson, Wynton Marsalis, Benny Golson and Joe Henderson. A recipient of the Student Award of Outstanding Performance and a member of the Dean’s List, Miss Ohno graduated with a B.A. in Jazz Studies.

She has performed at Lincoln Center, Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall, The Blue Note, Sweet Basil and The Lenox Lounge in Harlem, in addition to appearing on live radio broadcasts by WBGO and WNYC, and ABC TV's Good Morning America. She has performed and/or recorded with Slide Hampton, Claudio Roditi, James Spaulding, Rufus Reid, The John Lee Quartet, The Dizzy Gillespie Alumni Big Band and Sherry Maricle and the Diva Jazz Orchestra, as well as working as a side musician with such diverse musical ensembles as the Harlem Spiritual Ensemble and The Spirit of Life Ensemble.

Miss Ohno also leads her own group, and has released three CDs on the Japan-based Tokuma label. In 1997 her first album, “Powder Blue” was released, and in 1999 her second album, “Affirmation” was released, followed in 2000 by the album "Natural Woman." Her latest album "Shadows of Spring" (recorded in Argentina) was released by Notorious Records in 2005.

Tomoko Ohno, widely known for her composition and piano work with the Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All Stars, the Diva Jazz all female band, and for trio and quartet performances at many New York area jazz clubs, is accompanied here by one of her all time favorite musicians, Andres Boiarsky, an extraordinary saxophone and clarinet player, and two young Argentinean musicians, Ricardo Lew on guitar and Matias Gonzalez on bandoneon. The tracks include six originals by Ohno and four cuts by Astor Piazzola and others. Highly danceable,the music on this recording is meant to celebrate things Argentinean and to display the interplay possible between four musicians expert in what amounts to chamber style collaboration. I rate this CD as five stars.
