Keiko Matsui To Play U.S. Shows Feb 11 - May 21 In Support Of New Album On Shanachie
(Published: February 10, 2011)

With over a million and a half albums sold and sold out concerts around the globe, keyboardist Keiko Matsui is a citizen of the world and one of the brightest stars in instrumental music who recently released The Road... (Shanachie Entertainment), her first new recording in four years and a follow-up to her acclaimed 2007 South African inspired Moyo.

Over the course of nine heartfelt songs, Matsui majestically creates a distinct listening enlightenment that permeates one's consciousness. Augmenting the intimate journey are veteran drummers Vinnie Colaiuta (Frank Zappa, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock) and MB Gordy (The Doobie Brothers) and co-writing collaborations with revered Cameroonian bassist/guitarist/vocalist/producer Richard Bona (Pat Metheny, Bobby McFerrin, Zawinul Syndicate) on both the spirited dance-inducing "Nguea Wonja" (which means to ‘take pride in the road you are traveling on your journey') and the divine ballad "Touching Peace".

Elsewhere along The Road..., saxophonist Jackeim Joyner contributes to the title track while Kirk Whalum adds his signature sax sound on the deeply moving "Awakening" and the album's lead single "Affirmation".

The Road...
1) Secret Pond (ft. Vinnie Colaiuta)
2) Falcon's Wing (ft. Richard Bona)
3) Nguea Wonja (ft. Richard Bona)
4) Bohemian Concerto (ft. MB Gordy)
5) Embrace & Surrender (ft. Vinnie Colaiuta)
6) Awakening (ft. Kirk Whalum)
7) Touching Peace (ft. Richard Bona)
8) Affirmation (ft. Kirk Whalum & Vinnie Colaiuta)
9) The Road... (ft. Jackiem Joyner)

The Road... stands tall as another exquisite achievement in Keiko's masterful career. Over the course of three decades, her free spirit and creative genius have afforded her the luxury to share the stage with everyone from Stevie Wonder and Miles Davis to Hugh Masakela and Bob James.
