Amina Figarova is without doubt one of the most productive jazz composers and talented jazz piano players from Eastern Europe. Amina began playing piano as a child in Baku, Azerbaijan and has since travelled the world, studying as a classical concert pianist at the Baku Conservatory, jazz performance at the Rotterdam Conservatory and the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Figarova's crisp, light finger-dancing across the piano keys displays her dynamic range and technical skills all in a moment. Backed by her Dutch sextet on this evening, Figarova's style breathes new life into the legendary post-bebop jazz popularized in the 1960s.
