☞ LISTEN: Akiko Tsuraga Quartet at Showmans

Friday and Saturday, October 30th-31st, The Akiko Tsuraga Quartet will be performing at Showmans starting from 9:30 PM. As a follow-up to our Japanese jazz post, pianist Akiko and crew will performing this weekend at the jazz establishmet that's been around since 1942. Although not as sleek as Lenox Lounge or Minton's, the black and white Showmans graphics on the building and the weekly schedule has a bit of retro kitsch to them. FREE all days except Friday and Saturdays which has a $5 cover charge. Showmans is located 375 West 125th Street between Morningside Avenue and St. Nicholas. Tel.(212) 864-8941. Nearest subways are the A,B,C,D at 125th Street. Read more about Akiko Tsuraga and the new ladies of Jazz in our previous post: LINK. Photo by Ulysses
