Welcome

Welcome to the website of
Jazz Organist Akiko Tsuruga



"Queen of the Organ"
                               Lou Donaldson


"Akiko's playing is like watching a flower blooming, a bird spreading her wings in the music world.
Akiko is here to stay. Making Japan proud after just a few short years in the USA!
                           Dr. Lonnie Smith


"Akiko plays her personality...intense, positive, energetic and joyous. She plays to make others sound as good as they possibly can. It is always a joy to share the stage with her and play off of each other's energy." I look forward to many more great musical experiences from her AND with her!"
