After graduation from high school, he studied architecture in the University.While attending, he came across one amateur concert at Blue Note Tokyo through a friend of himself and when he watched their performing, he was extremely impressed by the energy of the music. So he put his sights on music. He began to study in AN music school in Tokyo and he had performed as an a cappella group and as his own band in Blue Note , B-flat and many musical venues in Tokyo. After several years, he went back to his hometown to improve jazz skill from his cousin, who is a jazz pianist performing some jazz venues in Sendai City and other areas. At that point, he decided to go over to learn jazz in the United States to improve his music skill. He’s learned Jazz, Blues, Bossa Nova and other genres from John Proulx, Tak Iwasaki, JD Walter, Jeanie LoVetri (Somatic Voicework(™)founder in New York, Vocal Specialist), Cathy Segal-Garcia, Joni Wilson, Chris Lee (pianist/composer), Randy Gloss (percussionist) and so far.

          Cassia DeMayo is an American-born jazz vocalist with a deep velvet resonance, a sparkling facility and a distinctive style that truly sets her apart from her contemporaries. Forgoing excessive adornment, she favors a simpler, minimalist approach, using space, patience and finessed phrasing to open up the lyric and express the bare emotion therein. In May of 2015, Cassia released her debut CD “Heart, We Will Forget Him,” a thoughtfully-crafted showcase for a voice that jazz critic Ivan Rod (Gaffa, Denmark) describes as “full, mellow and soft like butter.” The nine-track collection features original songs that reflect Cassia’s musical aesthetic – nicely exemplified in the tender languish of “My Party”– as well as her talents as a composer. Cassia’s selection and treatment of jazz standards is equally fresh; her interpretation of “So This is Love,” from the Disney classic “Cinderella,” is an evocative musing that is both playful and nostalgic. While her repertoire includes original compositions and jazz standards, Cassia steers away from road worn chestnuts, preferring more obscure gems that other vocalists often overlook. She is upbeat in nature but drawn to wistful themes, which she feels best resonate with her sensibilities. “I need there to be some heartbreak in it,” she explains, “Some vulnerability. I want to feel the longing in the song.” Cassia is definitely the focal point of “Heart, We Will Forget Him,” but she is the first to qualify that the project would not have come together as cohesively as it did without the support and gifted performances of Alex Olesen, Tejs Dragheim and Kristoffer Lysgaard Madsen, on guitar, bass and drums respectively. Critic Martin Loft describes the trio as “the best backing one upcoming jazz diva could wish for.” Cassia’s first formal training came when she was 11-years old. After Cassia announced that she wanted to be a “rock ‘n roller,” her mother enrolled her in the Pasadena Conservatory of Music to study classical voice. She continued her classical studies throughout most of her childhood, subsequently entering the classical voice program at the California Institute of the Arts (Cal Arts) upon graduation from high school. During her first year at Cal Arts, Cassia found herself gravitating towards jazz. “When singing jazz, I could express myself the way I needed and wanted to. It all just clicked.” Cassia transferred to Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA and in 2009, received a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies. During her time at Cornish, Cassia studied with notable Northwest musicians such as Dawn Clement, Julien Priester, Jovino Santos Neto, Kelley Harland and Becca Duran. Duran was of particular influence, mentoring Cassia and introducing her to the Seattle jazz scene, where she would ultimately launch her career. Since her arrival in Denmark, where she has been residing since 2011, Cassia has appeared at jazz clubs, venues and notable jazz festivals such as Riverboat Jazz Festival, Aarhus Jazz Festival, Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Vinter Jazz Festival and Bayerisches Jazz Weekend in Germany, where she was one of three featured performers. Cassia’s debut album continues to receive positive reviews, and her music is being played on numerous radio stations, including “The Jazz UK” and “Virginia Music,” an Amsterdam station that features female artists exclusively. Cassia’s master musicianship is balanced with a lucent humanity that touches the very soul of the listener. She creates an alluring emotional landscape that lingers long after the song is over. As her music continues to reach new audiences, her artistic impact will be recognized, celebrated and deeply felt. Cassia DeMayo is a rising star to keep an eye on.

          The songs Randi Cee sings can be called Jazz tunes. But they are so much more. These tunes were the pop songs of the day and run the gamut from sweet to saucy. The one thing they all have in common is they swing! Whether she is singing these songs in a nightclub, supper club, or jazz festival one thing becomes apparent she embodies the tune. It’s about telling the story and swinging that melody. As an audience member you are totally caught up in her stage presence. Randi Cee has enjoyed (and still is enjoying) a successful career as a Los Angeles based Actor, Dancer and Singer. Her craft has allowed her the opportunity to travel the world, from a commercial shoot in Tokyo, to having a recurring role in The New Adventures of Robin Hood which shot in Lithuania, to dancing live at the Academy Awards, Randi has covered the globe. Randi Cee, by her own admission, was “Ruined by MGM musicals”, As a small child she thought to act, sing, and dance must be the best way to go through life! To that end, Randi has had the opportunity to work with Directors as varied as Steven Spielberg, The Coen Brothers, Adam Shankman, Robby Marshall, and Joss Whedon. For the last several years, she has been focusing her efforts on bringing the gems of the Early American Songbook to life. Inspired by time spent in New Orleans. Randi is thrilled to be part of the great tradition of singers who are keeping this music alive and well. Although “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, a good night of music is not! Not only does Randi bring her voice to the stage, but a personality and style that you’d swear just walked off the Back Lot! If it’s raining out and you should find her dancing and singing in the street, just smile and tip your imaginary hat!

          Singer Caroline Holmes and guitarist Sam Ortolano met one October morning in 2016 singing and playing at a mass in an old, historic church in downtown Los Angeles. From the first notes of the first song, it was clear that they had instant, musical chemistry. Soon after, the duo Caroline and Sam was formed. Caroline and Sam love performing together, be it small, intimate gatherings or large celebrations of 200 plus guests. With a wide-ranging repertoire and timeless sound, full of nostalgia and surprise, the duo appeals to the millennial crowd, grandma and grandpa, and everyone in between. Their greatest joy is bringing to life memorable, classic standards from the 40's, 50's, 60's, and 70's, made popular by singers such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, etc. On occasions when the crowd wants a cool, classic pop/rock song from the 60's, 70's, 80's, or 90's, they can dial up a tune by The Beatles, or Dionne Warwick, The Police, Neil Young, or everyone's favorite, Stevie Wonder. So you want to keep it hot with current pop hits, no worries. Caroline and Sam are always in step with what's being played/streamed today. If good ol' Uncle Paul and Aunt Betty get frisky and want to rub bellys on the dance floor, a little Bossa Nova will do the trick with classics like Corcovado and Summer Samba, along with a number of other Jobim compositions. Throw in some Patsy Cline, Mumford and Sons, Louis Armstrong, and Cheap Trick, and we've got a party!! All the music Caroline and Sam play is fun, timeless and very romantic. It is always their goal to make your special event: wedding, birthday, anniversary or dinner party, just as vibrant and memorable. Requests are no problem, if they know it they'll play it, if not, with a little advanced notice, the duo will be more than happy to learn your favorite song. They can work on short notice, no problem with travelling and own all of their equipment, including a small sound system. To see and hear samples of Caroline and Sam's playing, take a quick look/listen to some of the recordings that are featured on this site. Any questions, feel free to contact them anytime. Let's party!!!

Their playlists overflow with one half hand-picked standards, one half forgotten gems… and a third-half, Jack’s Cats originals done in a period style. As a trio, Jack’s smooth clarinet and purring sax are backed by a micro-rhythm section to create an intimate all-acoustic sound that still swings. Those who know jazz know it’s good; those who don’t… just know it’s fun!

          When I was a young man in Argentina, I was introduced to the Great American Songbook, which was the popular music of that era in America, though not in Argentina. I was very attracted to this music and sought it out wherever I could. My first exposure to the vocalists and songs of this wonderful music came a few years later when a friend of mine brought back some albums that he got during a trip to the United States. I heard the first few bars of a song and suddenly felt that I had discovered something new. I didn’t know it at the time but I was listening to Frank Sinatra singing a song written by Cole Porter and accompanied by Nelson Riddle in what was later become one of his most iconic orchestrations. The song was “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” – How can anybody resist three giants like Sinatra, Porter and Riddle and not fall in love with this kind of music! I was fortunate that I knew some English so I could understand most of the song, because I suddenly felt this urge to sing only American Music. The photograph on the back cover of my latest CD, entitled “I’ve Gotta Be Me,” shows me at my very first public appearance in the City of Cordoba, Argentina in 1966. I feel compelled to explain that the young man in the photograph is neither my son nor my grandson…It is just ME only forty seven years ago – Have I changed that much ? – Really? After a few years, in 1968, I decided to move to the United States to follow my dream. Sometimes there is a certain blessing in not knowing how much one doesn't know so I came really believing that I was “ready” and totally unaware that I was merely starting a long and arduous learning process…but it was really exciting. The first thing I did was buy every album I could get my hands on and attend every show I could. Fortunately, at that time the vocalists singing the great American standards were the stars of the moment. I remember a few days after landing at LAX I was at the Greek Theatre listening to Jack Jones with the Buddy Rich Band…I thought to myself “This is Heaven and I am in it.” Since then, from time to time, I allowed circumstances to take me away from performing and drive me into the well known trap called Corporate America. However, there was never a moment when my love for the music was not the strongest presence in my life. And that love has led me to follow my heart and make “I’ve Gotta Be Me.” Many years ago, when I first started singing in Argentina, a very old timer tango singer under the effects of some good Chianti, gave me some sound advice – Kid (Yes…I WAS a kid at the time) if you want to sing you need to learn two things: First: Get the best musicians you can find and Second: Stay out of the way and don’t muck things up (He actually used a different word instead of muck) I am happy to say, I have been very successful with the first part – I am still working and getting better on the second one. When people have comments about the great musicians I have on my latest CD they always mentioned that I should be proud of them. To this I respond: More than proud, what I feel is extremely grateful. Andy, Steve, Karl and Doug are geniuses, and each one brings a life of musical experience and talent. Andy Howe has been my musical director for the last ten years and, in addition to playing wonderful piano and directing, he has written some of the best arrangements I have. He has an uncanny ability to understand in very few words, what I want to achieve with a song and what mood needs to be set and come up with the most beautiful and creative orchestrations. For these reasons, I still count within my repertoire songs like “I’ve Gotta Be Me,” “The Impossible Dream (The Quest),” and most recently “Here’s to Life.” All of them about celebrating what life is really about and being honest to one’s true self.

Appropriately named, Honey and Blue combines Darling’s sultry, bluesy sounds with Amber’s soulful, whimsical take on lyrics and harmony. Recently on WCBE (NPR), the band's much anticipated second album has finally arrived. 'All The Feels' showcases an entirely new sound to the band featuring Dwight Bailey on bass who is fresh off a tour with Dr. John and local jazz legend James Gaiters on drums. Born and raised in Ohio, Darling met Amber (a New York native) while working at the same restaurant in Los Angeles. The two were both pursuing a career in music and quickly hit it off, writing together for more than a year before forming their band. After performing all over LA, at sought-after venues like The House of Blues and The Hotel Cafe, the duo moved back to the Midwest to continue work on their first album. Once the duo arrived in Columbus they teamed up with Dwight Bailey and created their self titled first album.

Talk about musical pedigree, and one of the names that comes to mind almost immediately is Dave Askren. Previous albums have included a Re: Bill Evans, a guitar trio tribute to the iconic pianist, forays into Latin jazz, Rhubumba and Trio Nuevo +, and appearances in multiple settings such as big band and even a saxophone quartet. While his musical family tree may seem to have begun in the Askren home in Dayton, Ohio, his roots lineage — roots, branches and all — may be traced back through the “Era of Fusion,” and if that sounds as if the epithet suggests roots and branches as broad as jazz-blues, or rhythmn-blues, rock-and-roll, or jazz-rock, it is because Askren grew up in the shade of that enormous ancestral tree. At any given time, he might have been grooving to Tony Williams’ Lifetime, The Crusaders, Mahavishnu, or Chick Corea’s early bands. All of that should now make it easy to guess that Dave Askren can trace his ancestry all the way back to Miles Davis, starting with Miles’ own fusion period – like Bitches Brew or Jack Johnson – soon yielding to the classic 50’s-60’s Davis Quintets, which is what informs the unique, horn-like sound and rich harmony of Askren’s guitar. It wasn’t always that way, however. The musician in Askren started life as the son of a church organist/piano teacher, who also studied and played clarinet and saxophone. It was at 14 years of age that Askren hung up his reeds and horns, and took his foot off the piano pedal and with guitar in hand, stomped on a different set of pedals. The tipping point, according to Askren folklore, was a couple of small-club concerts: one where George Benson performed and the other was one featuring Pat Martino. However, everything came to fruition when Dave Askren entered Berklee College of Music, Boston — first as a student and later as a teacher. Further, the Boston experience gave Askren the opportunity to tutelage with Charlie Banacos and to be influenced by the guiding Jerry Bergonzi. While at Berklee, he also came under the spell of Rakalam Bob Moses and guitar guru Mick Goodrick. The rest is history of a different sort - where Dave Askren paid his dues with a very different roster of musicians, including LaToya Jackson, Marilyn McCoo, Little Anthony, The Coasters and, of course, his elder soul— brother, Jeff Benedict.

Pop music, of course, held the most promise of becoming a hit artist, “but I’ve loved singing jazz since high school. … And that is the kind of music that when I sing resonates with me the most,” Rush says in a recent telephone call. Her love of contemporary music took her to New York right after her 2008 graduation from New Hope/Solebury High School and had her audition for FOX-TV’s “American Idol,” where on the 10th season in 2011 she became known as the ”singing waitress” and made it to the Hollywood rounds. Lately, it took her to Los Angeles, where she now lives and hoped to make it as a recording artist.

        Come september 2009, my third year of being an Equator regular will be complete. I have to say this is the best place to be whether it's at lunch, at dinner, at breakfast, or in the afterhours for live-music and a clean-crowd party.

        The staff:
        - They are the best people you will ever meet and they will always approach you with a smile! This is possibly the main reason why I love this place so much, but moving on to the menu.

        The menu:
        - An assortment of exotic entrees, extraordinary appetizers and a beautiful selection of alcohol/traditional beverages. Half-off hard liquor every monday, and wine every wednesday (might be wrong on wine). Full bar, a couple of great waiters, and one hell of a chef.

        The atmosphere:
        - One word, ZEN. If you are tense, having a bad day, or just tired, I promise this place will bring out the best in you. Eccentric paintings hang on the wall, soft seats with a pillow for everyone, classy "rock/pebble" tables and lighting dim enough to relax you, but no even close to restaurant dimness so it does not depress you. I would say it is traditional-asian styled. The actual building is fairly big that gives you, the customer, ease of access to any part of the structure. Bathrooms are clean as can be and full of memorabilia from mafia movies such as The Casino, the Godfather, Scarface, Sopranos and much more.

        The teas:
        - The tea selection at Equator is unique, and I'd say the cafe is most notable for them. I can easily say that I have had the best teas at Equator, especially the Queen of the Damned, Blood Orange, and Formosa Silvertip Oolong. Served in metal pots faithful in design to the atmosphere. Also the iced teas are just so tasty you never get enough!

        I give Equator an 11 out of 10 for being such a comforting space for one to go. I have never had a boring/uncomfortable time at Equator and I promise, neither will you!

        I thought I had tried all versions of Asian food but I was really surprised how good the food was at Equator. They had a twist for every "traditional" Asian dish you can imagine. Wasabi crusted Mignon was off the hook! The Linguini was awesome too...it had this Thai flare with chinese and Italian...I can't really describe it. Basically everytime I go I have to try a new dish just to taste their twist on everything. Oh and their drink specials don't hurt either, they always have some real nice deals.

        The ambiance is awesome, real kick back and loungy...you feel high class at this place without paying high class prices. And they got some real hot chicks working here too. Damn, now I'm hungry.

        Wow, Equator has changed. Thank God! This place was fool of kids and now it's versitle. I came in and was in shock to see the chandeliers and a huge bar. Even the staff is a total change.Wow, and they still have my favorite drink "Banana Royale" yummy. I had lunch, i had the salmon salad, which was very good. Not fishy at all and very filling. All I could say is "WOW!"

        I go hear probably 6 times a week. The food is great and for a great price too. The experience is mostly family style. Make sure you try the coconut shrimp soup, the mignon cubes and the spicy tuna on crispy rice. The best part is now you can enjoy a drink along with your food as well (the trade off - enforce by the city - was the hookah and as much as I will miss the hookah its better that they have the martinis). If you go there on Saturdays or Sundays, make sure to try the dim-sum. My favorite would have to be the bamboo leaf wrapped sticky rice, pork dumplings and the egg custards.

        You pretty much can't go wrong here and the service is exceptional. The atmosphere is very refined now and you will be very pleased when you walk in. The art on the walls can be very interesting and make for great conversations just on their own.

        If you are a pasadena local, you would have known then to be a great coffee shop. Well, that hasn't changed either, and they are still serving cups of coffees, lattes or whatever you desire. In the mornings they have reduced prices on these items as well as a thank you to the Pasadena residents who have supported them throughout the years they have been at this location.

        Definitely worth the experience with good friends or a casual and fun date.

        I grew up in this area, and I grew to thinking of Equator as the place to go for hookah and high school dates. They've really changed, though - from a dramatic remodel to a new menu (actual food - a pan asian assortment with surprisingly low prices - think like 7-15 dollars for something that would be double at say, Koi). The ambiance inside is pretty chill, and the food is pretty good, which was a huge surprise to me. I liked my shu mai, pad thai, and black cod - really wierd combo, but pretty good. Also notable was their selection of adult milkshakes (what a great idea!!!). I had something called a mango madness, which was essentially a mango milkshake with rum (yes!) - it definitely made the bad date go by much better.

        I'm looking forward to going back - it's promising. I just wished that the alley it was in wasn't such a magnet for homeless people and tatoooed punks...

        I've lived in L.A. for about 4 months now, and this was undoubtedly the worst meal we've had so far. I guess that's what we get for stumbling into a place and not paying attention to the fact that a coffee bar fills most of the place. The dim sum had been adequately microwaved or resteamed, so I guess it was OK (but mediocre). My husband's burger (which the server recommended) looked like a mcdonald's patty, and the fries seemed to have been soaked in grease overnight. I think it's beans that you're supposed to soak... We were with my mom, so he didn't want to be a complainer. But I could see the angry vein pulsating in his neck. As if this wasn't bad enough, the embarrassing burger was delivered about 10 minutes after the dim sum. This place should grab some plywood and nails, seal the kitchen door, and give it up.

        Their beverages were below average and the music was too loud. On top of that, the manager insisted on leaving the main door open, so the smoke from the smokers sitting outside was blowing inside. It made inside seem like a smoking area. After an hour of inhaling second hand smoke, I got up and closed the door. To my surprise, the manager came running behind me and opened the door. I explained to him that all the cigarette smoke was blowing inside (I am sure he had noticed) yet he insisted in leaving the door open (mind you, this was in January and ambient temperature was rather cool, so there was no justification for having to leave the door open). I was uphauled at the unaccomodating attitude and just left. I am never going back. There are other places with much better service and much better drinks.

        This is a unique cafe' they serve various drinks, smoothies, and coffee. They also have a deli, that if you get there on a good day they might have things like: turkey, tomatoes and other things on the menu. Either way the sandwhiches are excellent and inexpensive. The atmosphere is very artistic and rustic, with various comfortable couches and chairs. Yes the music is up loud, but if its "too loud" then maybe your getting old. I have not been here for the night scene but I noticed that they offer hooka and have some tables outside. Go check it out.

        PROS: Great place to relax, eat, drink and do homework.

        The Equator is a pretty good place to hang out but it's not the best music venue.

        Unfortunately, when people peform, not everyone is listening, which is a little frustrating when you get a loud group out front, but the fact that they host new talent is great and very appreciated.

        But, I have found that they are infamous for double-booking acts, so make sure you confirm, confirm, and confirm your gig, because there's a chance you could show up and be bumped with little apology.

        Their website is poor and rarely functions properly, so you've gotta go out of your way to find out what acts are booked through out the week.

        Music aside though, if you want to sit and chill with friends, totally do! Their coffee drinks are pretty good and the decor rocks. But - don't bring your homework or anything, because it is REALLY dark inside.

        PROS: Fun atmosphere to chat, good drink selection
        CONS: Young crowd can be loud outside and distracting during music performances

        I haven't been here in a while but I have been plenty of times in the past. I don't really like the atmosphere there. On Friday nights they have Karaoke night where they set up a stage but the place is already SMALL as it is. It gets unbearably crowded, the music is waaay to loud for my liking, there is nowhere to sit, and the people get on my nerves. The every other coffee shop out there the prices are high so there is really nothing here that I would go back for.

        I have only been to this place a couple of times. The coffee was fairly good and reasonably priced. It's more of a night spot than a regular hang-out coffee joint, though. They sometimes have live music, but it's not usually my type of thing. Also, if they're just playing the regular house music, it is usually turned up REALLY loud. It is also really dark inside. So, all-in-all, not your regular coffee joint, but I guess it's a cool night spot coffee place if that's what you are into.

        They tend to make their drinks overly sweet, such as the black forest mocha (it's raspberry syrup on top of an overly sweet mocha), but the ambience is great and it's a fantastic place to get work done during a weekday. Just take a pad and pencil andprove theorem after theorem. They also have wireless.

        Ok, I remember when the Equator first opened. It was full of cool people just looking for a place to chill and have some coffee. Buts since the original owner sold, the crowd has change to something resembling the Creep Show. Oh, and does the music have to be that freagin' loud? Most people are there to talk not scream at each other. Don't ask why I keep going back, maybe it's out of habit since I've been going for so long or maybe it's desperation for a mediocre cup of coffee, either way bring earplugs.
