Internationally known Jazz Pianist Choko Kimura Aiken will be the guest artist on the September 27, 2015 SuperJazz Concert.
Choko, born and raised in Japan, began studying classical piano at the age of three. She studied piano, violin, voice and music theory at Colleges in Tokyo and Fukuoka as well as making journeys to the United States to study jazz in LA and NY. Her “Imagination” album, recorded in LA in 2011, was featured in that years February issue of “JAZZIZ” magazine. Choko left her long time group Tri-Voices and other long-associated bands to relocate to Birmingham in January 2013 after meeting her husband Jeff in Tokyo. He was one of several runners sent to a race by the Birmingham Track Club. Since that time Choko has enjoyed playing in the Magic City at many of its local venues which include the 4th Avenue Jazz Festival, Moss Rock Festival, Creek Bank Festival, Mt. Brook Arts Festival, Eric Essix Jazz Escape and as always she looks forward to continuing on with her main goal of simply making people “Happy” with her music!
