About the album

Japanese vocalist May Okita recently departed Los Angeles where she spent several years developing her musical voice with some of the finest mentors and musical partners in jazz. Before moving back to Tokyo, she recorded this deeply personal album with two particularly inspirational and empathetic musicians: pianist Josh Nelson and guitarist Larry Koonse. Together, they explore many of the subtleties of the human heart - pleasure, sorrow, passion, calmness - her sonorous and poignant voice floating effortlessly over the Bernstein/Comden gem “Some Other Time,” the Joni Mitchell classic “Both Sides Now,” the Lou Carter, Herb Ellis, Johnny Frigo beauty “Detour Ahead,” or May and Josh's own title song. "Art of Life" is a heartfelt debut for a promising new voice.
