North Station "Swings" to the Sounds of Sultry Jazz

So what if the trains don't always arrive on time. If you depart out of North Station, you can hang around and listen to some jazz with the MBCR's new First Friday's jazz concerts. This concerts will begin this Friday, November 7th from 4:00 - 6:30 p.m. featuring musicians from Berklee College of Music.

To kick off the new concert series, jazz and Latin pianist Mihoko Abe will be performing with the "Mihoko Trio." Ms. Abe is originally from Sapporo, Japan and she has studied at Berklee.

According to the press release, the "Mihoko Trio has an excellent well-blended sound and features not only jazz standards but, many of her own compositions. You can hear & feel what her soul is saying through her original works. Mihoko’s CD is currently in progress and she plans to release it in the spring of 2009."

If you're in North Station, start your weekend off with some sweet jazz sounds. For the time being (and the foreseeable future), the concert series is only being offered in North Station for logistical and acoustic reasons.

This is a new customer service initiative offered by the MBCR.
