Pandemic-Delayed Album is Festive Follow-Up to Months of Isolation

In December 2019, pianist Yoko Miwa and her trio appeared with vocalist Sheila Jordan at The Mad Monkfish in Cambridge, MA.

It stuck with me, and, after playing it with Sheila, I went back to hear the original version and thought, ‘Wow, what a beautiful song!’ The lyrics are amazing and totally fit with the message I wanted to convey musically: ‘With every note I play, I play with love. With every word I say, it’s coming from my heart.’”
