Album Remarks & Appraisals:
This album was recorded in New York, commemorating Miho's graduation from the master course at Manhattan School of Music. Except on one cover tune of Lady Gaga, all other songs are Miho's original compositions, and the album features her talent as a jazz composer. Leading her own 13-piece unit and having the guest participation of Steve Wilson and Stefon Harris, she expresses vivid and lively sound on Journey To Journey.
