"Creating the album ‘Soul Quest’ was like going on a soul quest, as I tried to figure out how to express the things I was thinking and experiencing during this past year," confides pianist, composer and humanitarian Keiko Matsui. "This music energizes me and I am overwhelmed with emotion when I listen to it. I hope people will allow themselves to go inside the music and become a part of my journey," says Matsui. The profound pianist and world citizen is celebrating a triumphant 25 years of recording in the US, with the release of her 24th CD.

In the words of Duke Ellington, Keiko Matsui is “beyond category.” The courageous, spiritually-driven and consummate artist who enjoyed the distinction of being an invited guest and performer at the second International Jazz Day, sponsored by UNESCO and held in Istanbul in April 2013, transcends boundary. Her unique melting pot of musical influences have garnered her a devout international following. The eloquent and soft-spoken yet deliberate musician tours relentlessly and seeks to make a genuine connection with her audience. "Everybody has so many things going on in their lives but my concerts are special for me. The music creates a oneness. The exchange I share with my audience is the root of my energy. It's like my mission."

Matsui has worked alongside the best including Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Hugh Masakela and Bob James. A true humanitarian, Keiko has lent her voice to raise awareness for such causes as The Daniel Pearl Foundation, The United Nations World Food Programme, Be The Match Marrow Registry and The National Donor Program and Marrow Foundation. She has also lent her efforts to the continued revitalization and healing of Japan in the wake of the recent Tsunami and Fukushima disasters. "I still have these images of kindergarten teachers holding their kids in order to protect them. I also think about all of the older people who did
