One of the top jazz organists of the past 15 years, Akiko Tsuruga was born in Osaka, Japan, started playing organ when she was three, and moved to New York City in 2001 where she had lessons from Dr. Lonnie Smith.

An excellent straight ahead jazz player, Ms. Tsuruga worked for years with Lou Donaldson and has led at least 11 records of her own since 2004, often using guitarist Graham Dechter and drummer Jeff Hamilton.

On her LiveStream from Oct. 22, 2020, Akiko Tsuruga plays mostly lesser-known swinging standards, ballads and a blues in a trio with trumpeter-flugelhornist Joe Magnarelli and Dred Scott on congas.
