Keiko: Live In Tokyo

When we last spoke to Keiko Matsui in March of 2011, she had just released “The Road”, which featured an incredible lineup of musicians, such as Vinnie Colaiuta, Richard Bona, James Hara and Kirk Whalum.  Since then, Keiko has released another solo project titled “Soul Quest”, as well as teaming up with the legendary Bob James for their album “Altair & Vega.”  Outside of the studio, Keiko is a passionate and relentless world traveler, bringing her music to her fans all over the world.  In doing so, she captured an incredible performance in her native country of Japan that has recently been released as a CD/DVD combo titled “Keiko: Live In Tokyo”.  It’s her first live release in many years and it features past Inside MusiCast guest Kirk Whalum and guitarist Chuck Loeb.  Here to talk to us more about this project is Keiko Matsui.
