"Queen of the Organ"  

- LOU DONALDSON   JAZZ SAXOPHONIST 

"Akiko's playing is like watching a flower blooming, a bird spreading her wings in the music world. Akiko is here to stay."

- DR. LONNIE SMITH   JAZZ ORGANIST

"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! "

        - JEFF HAMILTON    JAZZ DRUMMER

Akiko received Hot House Jazz Award for 2017 Best Organ
