RadioIndy is pleased to present Chieko Yano with a GrIndie Award for their CD "Blue Sonata"
"Blue Sonata" by Chieko Yano is a compelling transcendental collection of vocal-driven jazz tunes. Passion and fervor are the two most attractive elements of this CD. Chieko's breezy and graceful vocal tone adds to the sincere and inviting feel of these tunes. "Foie Gras at the Motel 6" demonstrates just this, while introducing a pleasantly long-winded saxophone solo. Beautiful musicianship is yet another asset of "Blue Sonata," as flaunted through the thrilling piano intro of "Someday My Prince Will Come." From start to end, this CD is filled with creative instrumental surprises and solid vocal performances.
