Spotlight on Guest Artist Yoko Noge 
COPIED FROM PROGRAM-EVEN I COULD NOT CONCENTRATE THE WORDS LIKE THIS:
Osaka blues vocalist and Victor recording artist Yoko Noge left Japan in the 1980ís to explore the Chicago Blues scene.
She soon took up the piano with Boogie and Blues master Erwin Helfer.The Jazz Me Blues band was founded in Chicago
in 1987 by Noge and Clark Dean.They merged their musical talents in order to participate in Chicagoís blues and jazz
community.Two legends, the late guitarist Floyd McDaniel and the late drummer S.P.Leary, played with the band for

many years and can both be heard on Jazz Me Blues early CDís.The band currently has six members who are jazz
veterans and each with a unique musical personality.As the band leader, Nogeís objective is to allow each musician
to fully contribute their sound as part of the performance.The band plays many of Nogeís compositions, with lyrics in
Japanese and English, and revitalizes classic blues and mainstream jazz with its own blend of Osaka and Chicago cultures.

 

Program order and additional pieces will be announced from the stage.
