After the first minute into this disc you will swear you are listening to Shirley Scott, or Jack McDuff, or Jimmie Smith, but it's not. Akiko knows the truth about this instrument. She displays its beauty like few have and can now. To the Hammond sickos, and you know who you are, this is the new day. Akiko and this group secure the guitar/organ jazz tightly. The swing is natural and funky, not forced or over syncopated. I can't wait to see what the coming years have in store. I have a new Hammond hero!

My husband loves the B-3. I found this disc searching for some new music and he really enjoys her delivery and style. It's updated and fresh.

I first experienced Akiko live at the Markeim Arts Center in Haddonfield, NJ.
She totally wowed the audience. This little gal can swing! I bought the CD and love it. Great backup group too.

The success of Sweet And Funky would not only bring Akiko Tsuruga to the top
of the jazz charts in 2007, but even solidifies her reputation as an international star
on the Hammond B-3 organ, thanks to her live club performances and debut CD in
2004. Since releasing her first album, Tsuruga would fully begin her mighty prolific
recording career and artistic immortality with this highly supercharged blockbuster
that is showcased with explosive Hammond organ solos, high-rocking atmosphere
and creative arrangements which have made her a bonafide jazz star in her native
Japan and elsewhere. Filled with unique compositions such as Meannie Queenie,
the serendipity-driven Mushi Mushi and DRG, as well as standards like Sweet And
Lovely, Dots And Moonbeams and a superb take on Whitney Houston's Saving All
My Love For You, Sweet And Funky deliver all of us you the type of perfection and
grand performance to whom we come to expect from a master jazz organist. Also
selected by many critics in the Ten Best CD's of 2007, Sweet And Funky had even
brought her to the top of in Down Beat's critics poll during that same year, where it
made this blockbuster hit such a timeless classic and wonderful music experience
that will certainly live on for the ages. P.S.: You may want to get the U.S. Edition,
because it has the showstopping album cover. It's An Absolute Hard-Hitting Must!

EXTREME WARNING: Unless your computer has updated Norton Anti-virus protection or comparable protection against covert & malicious software (which infects your computer & then downloads all your files at night by spies) DO NOT ACCESS ANY OF MY REVIEWS!!! [This is no hype or joke.]

Sometimes it is an absolute joy to find a new musical artist who has truly mastered both their craft and their instrument. AKIKO (T)SURUGA's [silent T] CD, SWEET & FUNKY, is not only a jewel and a joy...but is all, and I mean, ALL that jazz!

The Hammond B-3 organ is an instrument to be played...and [anytime past the late MIGHTY BURNER, Charles Earland] is not to be played-with. Why? Because unless you have mastered the repetoire, any competent back-up trio [Her's is excellent!] will very often lock into a jazz groove that can make a novice look incompetent or downright ridiculous. But this woman (metaphorically) is large and in charge... always setting the groove, and her timing is (Pow!) right on the money! All the time!

The only thing sweet about this jazz CD is Akiko's own personality, because this ENTIRE ALBUM is down-to-B-3-earth, and sho-nuff funky. (I thank my brother for hipping me to her.)

P.S.-- Rather than writing a separate review for Akiko's album, SAKURA, which I also purchased, I will only say that all of the above applies... and even more! So, buy them both!
