The 2014 festival arrives at REDCAT on September 21 with a double bill: the fiercely creative duo of pianist Satoko Fujii and trumpeter Kappa Maki opens for DownBeat’s “Rising Star Drummer” Allison Miller and her high-octane five-piece band BOOM TIC BOOM! Headlining on September 26 is NEA Jazz Master Toshiko Akiyoshi, on piano alongside bassist Paul Gill and drummer Aaron Kimmel. The trio is preceded by the debut of a Los Angeles Jazz Society commission from pianist-composer Cathlene Pineda and L.A.’s first-ever poet laureate Eloise Klein Healy.
