Hear Pianist Makoto Ozone in an Exclusive Performance at WBGO
Makoto Ozone’s wizardry on the piano has made him a star not only in his native Japan but around the world.
He taught himself to play the organ when he was just a toddler and then as a preteen, switched to the piano after hearing Oscar Peterson in concert. Ozone has spent his life mastering jazz and classical music, and he’ll demonstrate his proficiency in both with a performance Tuesday night at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, followed by concerts Thursday through Saturday at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall with the New York Philharmonic.
We were thrilled to have Makoto Ozone play our piano at WBGO and talk about his career and upcoming performances.
