At the Atlanta Jazz Festival

Rancho Dominguez, CA • August, 2010 – A Kawai Concert Grand Piano was recently featured at the 33rd annual Atlanta Jazz Festival - the largest free jazz festival in the world. It was utilized in performances by Esperanza Spalding, the Lionel Hampton All Stars and a rousing festival closing set featuring Japan's top instrumentalist, Hiromi, accompanied by legendary bassist Stanley Clarke.

Kawai is the official piano of the Atlanta Jazz Festival and Kawai was also the exclusive piano used at Atlanta's top jazz club, Churchill Grounds, during Atlanta's 30 Days of Jazz leading up to the festival weekend at Piedmont Park. After Hiromi's incredible performance the festival's technical director, Josh Antonucci exclaimed, "That piano will be smiling for weeks!”. From the look on Hiromi’s face, the feeling may be mutual.
