Fiona's Comments

Kathy Bates would love this. Do you have a loved one locked in the attic? Are those ankle straps working? Captures the over-protective, over-worked, omnipotent maternal love that can't be matched...and there's harp.

About the Album

IMA IMA (Meg Okura & The Pan Asian Chamber Jazz Ensemble) I became an ima (“mom” in Hebrew) seven years ago. The title track Ima Ima (Track 1) is a celebration of womanhood and motherhood. The ensemble has gone through many transformations since the debut in 2006. IMA IMA is our 4th album, and the ensemble is now expanded to a 10-piece chamber jazz orchestra, featuring our special guests, Tom Harrell and Rez Abbasi.

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!
