About Akira Tana and Friends

Miles Davis and John Coltrane loved the songs of the late Oscar- and Grammy-winning composer Michel Legrand. Among his 100+ recordings are collaborations with jazz’s greatest artists, like Ben Webster, Bill Evans, Phil Woods, Stan Getz, and Oscar Peterson. Michel’s melodies are likely running through your mind from time to time, from songs such as “Windmills of Your Mind” and “What Are You Doing The Rest of Your Life?” Drumming superstar Akira Tana and beloved vocalist Jackie Ryan team up with a soulful jazz organ trio from Osaka to bring the timeless melodies of Michel Legrand to life.
