http://www.songbirdtaeko.com and Flat Nine Records present Taeko Fukao’s «One Love.» A native of Japan, Taeko came to New York City in 1998 with dreams of expanding her singing career and took a strong liking to Jazz. Taeko studied with Juanita Fleming, a jazz & gospel singer who was a vocalist with the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Big Band, and Marion Cowings who is the first disciple of Jon Hendricks. The intense jazz study, coupled with her
naturally appealing clear voice and unique musical ideas, have earned her performances in some of New York City’s best known jazz clubs, including Blue Note, Ashford & Simpson’s Sugar Bar, Lenox Lounge, and Zinc Bar. Her musical talent is also bought to Japan every spring and fall.
«Definitely one heck of a jazz singer, Taeko Fukao’s graceful approach to the music leaves quite an impression on «One Love.» Armed with a beautiful voice and range, this is one lady of jazz who knows how to carry a tune and make it come alive.» – Edward Blanco / www.ejazznews.com
