- RINA releases first album
Yamaha Music Entertainment Holdings, Inc proudly announces the release of the debut album from their newly signed artist RINA, a talented New York City-based jazz pianist and 2nd place winner at the Ellis Marsalis International Jazz Piano Competition.
For this album, she assembled a trio with Yasushi Nakamura, one of New York’s most in-demand bassists, and Jerome Jennings, notably famous for his work with Christian McBride and reputed in the New York jazz scene. In addition to this amazing team, the album was produced by internationally acclaimed pianist Makoto Ozone.
“On this album, I wanted the music to be authentic, to represent myself not only as a musician but also as a person. It is still jazz, but rather than having the feeling of listening to a jazz album, I want people to be able to connect with my emotions through the stories I am telling. I hope my music will create a positive vibe for listeners, who can then go on and connect with and reflect upon their own feelings in an honest way." - RINA says
New album will be available on iTunes/Apple Music worldwide digitally except Japan. In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, the release of RINA’s first album RINA in Japan has been postponed (release date TBA)
An announcement will be made as soon as a new release date is decided.
