Vocal, Guitar and Piano

Yuko originally met John, her husband, in New York in summer 2000. Soon after that they began to play as a vocal and guitar duo in Greenwich Village. Their repertoire has been expanded since those first day as a team, but from the beginning one of their goals has been to provide the right blend of jazz, bossa nova, and Japanese and American classic pop. In the summer of 2017, Yuko and John moved to Tokyo and are enjoying their new musical life in this exciting city. They are excited to play at the FCCJ again with their musical friend, jazz pianist Eisuke Kato again.

Eisuke Kato, born in Yokohama, started performing with Yoshitaka Shoji(gt), Kenichi Nishio(tp), Yoichi Kobayashi(dr) and in 2003 released his first album as a leader, “Simply Irresistible” on What’s New Records. Eisuke has collaborated with progressive rock band Six North and appeared on two CDs with them earning immense praise from European music magazines. Eisuke has toured with Finnish Guitarist Niklas Winter's band in Finland, China and Japan, and produced, arranged and played piano on Maria Eva’s CD “Prelude to a Kiss.” He currently performs with various kinds of jazz groups playing his own and others’ compositions in various idioms ranging from straight ahead to polyrhythmic, polyphonic, and odd-time signature modern jazz.

And remember, it’s free. No cover charge. No music charge. You just can’t beat SNL for an exciting, entertaining night out in Tokyo.
