Pianist, composer, and improviser Motoko Honda is a musical force of nature who blends jazz with chamber music, electronic music, and sounds of music from around the globe. Long a vital part of the improvised music community, Honda has collaborated with many luminaries, like Wadada Leo Smith, Elliott Sharp, William Winant, Mike Watt, and others. The “keyboard alchemist” (Los Angeles Times) leads her quartet through intricate compositions that layer taut rhythms and lush melodies.
