Amina Figarova

“a skilled and imaginative composer” - Chicago Tribune

JazzFresno is proud to present internationally renowned pianist/composer Amina Figarova and her acclaimed sextet to Fresno's Brick Restaurant on Friday evening, May 11th, 2012, at 7:00 p.m.

The group is touring the U.S. in support of Amina Figarova's 12th album, titled Twelve - her debut release on the renowned independent German label In + Out. The recording celebrates jazz as an international music and New York City as a locale where jazz gypsies may feel most at home. A suite of songs for sextet Figarova wrote swiftly in 2011 after moving with her husband and musical partner, flutist Bart Platteau, to Forest Hills, Queens from their longtime European base, Twelve is suffused with the heightened expectations, sense of adventure and fresh perceptions that voluntary emigrés enjoy, as well as the confidence, creative energies and nuanced fulfillment that artists gain from being in the right place at the right time.
