European Memoirs (CD, Album, Pap). The Premiere Orchestral Jazz Band in transition from be-bop to Progressive, the 2 geniuses attracting a kick-ass supporting cast. Totally amazing, if you like this sort of thing, as I do. I have it on vinyl, but you can find it digital.
In the spring of 1983 I happened to attend a Toshiko/Lew concert at Carnegie Hall in which the band played numerous selections from this album. All I can say is, WOW!!!! I have been a big fan ever since. Just listen to the wonderful arrangements, the stellar performances by all involved. Ellington, Basie, Kenton, you're all great but you got nothing on Toshiko.

In 1982 the principals moved from Los Angeles to New York City and re-formed the group with new members under the name, The Toshiko Akiyoshi Jazz Orchestra featuring Lew Tabackin.
The Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin Big Band recorded frequently during the 1970s, including several LPs for RCA, four of which are heard in part on this 1991 Novus CD compilation. Akiyoshi, a talented pianist who was recommended by Oscar Peterson to producer Norman Granz after he heard her during a tour of Japan in the '50s, proves herself an inventive composer/arranger whose charts don't use commonplace voicings.
