Tokyo's best Jazz Vocal-Piano duo

A beautiful voice with a lone piano is the most intimate jazz combination, and no one in Tokyo does it better than HAPPY TALK—Andrea Hopkins and Jonathan Katz.
Andrea Hopkins started her singing career in Atlanta where she made a name for herself before hitting the Asia hotel circuit, finally landing in Tokyo. The busy singer has performed at virtually every major live house, club and hotel from Tokyo to Kyoto and has recorded with artists ranging from Japanese pop idol Ayumi Hamasaki to rock icon Elvis Costello. She handles dance songs, funk, and hip-hop. But her first love is jazz. "When I am doing Jazz, I feel like I am so free," she says.
Pianist Jonathan Katz is a ubiquitous feature of Tokyo's music scene, leading small groups, backing the likes of Ray Brown, Lew Tabackin and Eddie Henderson, and more recently leading the 19-piece TOKYO BIG BAND. In addition to cutting a lengthening list of acclaimed CDs he has toured North America, even appearing at New York's famed Blue Note. Andrea and Jonathan will be playing a selection of jazz and pop standards. It's sophisticated jazz the way it's supposed to be.
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.
