About the Album

Pianist and composer Yoonmi Choi is no stranger to the stage, and certainly not to pioneering her unique creative voice. From performing at over 300 venues in Europe, to receiving international acclaim across three continents, playing almost every major jazz festival, and directing the “Girl Behind the Curtain” Musical in Times Square, Yoonmi has pushed beyond the outer limits and expectations of both classical and jazz. Now, with her trio, Yoonmi presents a bold, Leiden Jazz Award Winning, genre-bending project: 7 Days. “...Yoonmi’s playing and composing are first rate. She is extremely talented and has unlimited potential to continue developing into a world-class jazz musician.” -David Berkman, Jazz pianist, Prof. Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College Born in Incheon, South Korea, Yoonmi began studying piano at age 3. She continued to study in South Korea as she grew up, and ultimately received her classical and jazz piano education at Sookmyung Women’s University and the Dong-ah Institute of Media and Arts College. Shortly thereafter, Yoonmi took her studies to the Netherlands, where she graduated with the highest performance score at the Prince Claus Conservatoire. It was during her time in Europe that the seeds for 7 Days were planted and began to blossom.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
