Manami Morita


**Price includes brunch, music and a drink.**

Pianist, Manami Morita was born in Saitama, Japan in 1984. She started off learning classical piano at the age of 4. Unfortunately, she hated piano lessons, because she couldn’t stand all the rules in classical piano. On the other hand, she loved playing as she wanted and felt. At the age of 13, she met JAZZ. “Well, THIS IS AWESOME, I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT!!”, she proclaimed.



After learning on her own, she received a scholarship to study at Berklee College of Music in 2005 and decided to change her life - previously, she had thought of being an English teacher or a flight attendant! In 2006, she moved to the United States and started her career at Berklee in Boston to search for her own music, based on jazz.

Manami majored in Jazz Composition at Berklee. In 2007, she was awarded the Mary Jane Earnhart Endowed Scholarship by Berklee. In 2008, she was selected as a representative of the Jazz Composition Department and was also awarded the Herb Pomeroy Award. In 2009, she participated in the International Kodolanyi Jazz Competition in Hungary with Tenor Saxophone player Mitsuru Hirayama and won 3rd prize. Manami was awarded the Outstanding Performer Award at the same competition.

Manami has performed with internationally acclaimed musicians, such as Esperanza Spalding, Greg Hopkins, Mark Walker, Rosa Pasos, Oscar Stagnaro and more. Also, she has appeared at major music festivals such as the Martha’s Vineyard Music Festival, Salem Jazz Festival, Tokyo Jazz, Rochester International Jazz Festival etc.

Manami graduated from Berklee in 2008 and released her first album “Colors” in 2009, her second album “For You” in 2010 and her third album "When Skies are Grey" in 2012 through Rambling Records, Inc. Currently, she is based in New York City.
