CD Review: Yoko Miwa Trio - Keep Talkin'

Yoko Miwa (piano); Will Slater (bass); Scott Goulding (drums); Brad Barrett (bass on 1 track).
(Review by Lance)
You know the feeling, you've got no money coming in and the bills are arriving on a conveyer belt and you wonder HTF am I going to pay them? The solution is, of course, to rob Peter to pay Paul and, ultimately, vice versa.

This is my situation - no I'm not looking for money - I need volunteers*. Volunteers to review the deluge of CDs that have already occupied my garage and are making inroads into just about every room in the house - and I mean every room! Apart from that, there are n downloads and streamers hovering out in cyberspace threatening to land. My postman will expect a tip the equivalent of maybe half of the national debt or perhaps a copy of the Yoko Miwa Trio's album, Keep Talkin'...
He could do worse... 

Miwa, a Japanese born, Boston based, pianist, composer (a professor at Berklee) plays a lot of piano and this CD features her playing jazz standards such as In Walked Bud; Boogie Stop Shuffle; Golden Slumbers/You Never Give me Your Money (Beatles); Conversation (Joni Mitchell) plus several of her own compositions with a couple of great guys supporting her all of the way. If you like jazz piano - look no further.
