The Kayo Hiraki Quartet

IMG_0004For the past decade, I’ve been performing as a special guest with the Kayo Hiraki Quartet (KHQ).  Kayo Hiraki (http://www.kayopiano.com), originally from Japan, has been playing in the NYC jazz scene for 20 years.  During that time, she has played (and continues to play) every weeknight at the renowned Arturo’s on Houston Street, just off Thomspson.  You can often catch me playing with the KHQ at Cleopatra’s Needle on 92nd Street and Broadway.  Kayo and I also do private events and are available as a duo as well.
