Album Notes
Manami has been exploring her style for a mix of contemporary jazz and traditional old school approach. Her older works were based on her piano trio. However, she has experimented new arrangements and writings for different instrumentation on this album "When Skies are Grey."

“Ms. Morita has the complete package: a new, vibrant sound; engaging tunes; and a unique, winning personality.”
—South Coast Today
“Morita is a young jazz star with incredible momentum and potential. In addition to leading her trio, she’s equally likely to play solo shows. Her interest in traditional jazz and swing pushes her to continue arranging for big band.”
—MIT’s “The Tech” Newspaper

Manami Morita was born in Saitama, Japan in 1984. She started off learning classical piano at the age of 4. Unfortunately, she hated piano lessons, because she couldn’t stand all the rules in classical piano. On the other hand, she loved playing as she wanted and felt. At the age of 13, she met JAZZ. “Well, THIS IS AWESOME, I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT!!”, she proclaimed.

After learning on her own, she received a scholarship to study at Berklee College of Music in 2005 and decided to change her life - previously, she had thought of being an English teacher or a flight attendant! In 2006, she moved to the United States and started her career at Berklee in Boston to search for her own music, based on jazz.

Manami has performed with internationally acclaimed musicians, such as Esperanza Spalding, Greg Hopkins, Mark Walker, Rosa Pasos, Oscar Stagnaro and more. Also, she appeared at the Martha’s Vineyard Music Festival in 2008 with other groups, such as Boston Pops, Gladys Knight and Kate Taylor. Also some other music festivals such as Salem Jazz Festival 08’ and 09’, Tokyo Jazz 10’, Rochester International Jazz Festival 11’ etc. She has played at prestigious jazz clubs, such as Sculler’s Jazz Club, Ryle’s Jazz Club, Blue Note Nagoya, Billboard Osaka and more
