Portraits In Time
Portraits in Time is a double CD compilation of Monday Michiru's work from 2002-2013. Michiru has always loved crossing borders and creating hybrids. Having grown up in both America and Japan she is a mix of two very different cultures and has always looked for commonalities between people, across gender, race, age, and socio-economic differences. The daughter of famed jazz musicians Charlie Mariano and Toshiko Akioshi, Monday was born into music and effortlessly flows through influences from classic and modern jazz to Brazilian and pop. Says Monday, "I have had different compilations made of my previous works from the beginning of my solo recording career which started in 1991. This compilation has been carefully shaped to include a cross section of work that fits the unique tonal color and sophisticated aesthetic of Adventure Music."
