Maki Asakawa (浅川マキ Asakawa Maki, January 27, 1942 – January 17, 2010) was a Japanese jazz and blues singer, lyricist and composer. Born in Mikawa (now part of the city of Hakusan), Ishikawa Prefecture, after graduating high school she worked for a time as a teller in the local national pensions office before moving to Tokyo. Particularly influenced by the styles of Mahalia Jackson and Billie Holiday, she began her career singing at US Army bases and at cabarets.

The queen of the Japanese underground music scenes. Great piece from the compilation of Maki Asakawa finest songs. 19 May 2016 ·. 浅川マキが初コンサートの前夜、寺山修司に唄えないと抗議した「ロング・グッド・バイ」. From album 『Asakawa Maki II』(1971) The song title means "The cluster amaryllis of the port".

A stunning survey of the 1970s heyday of great Japanese singer and countercultural icon Maki Asakawa (1942-2010). Deep-indigo, dead-of-night enka, folk, and blues, inhaling Billie Holiday and Nina Simone down to the bone. With excellent notes by Alan Cummings and and the fabulous photographs of Hitoshi Jin Tamura. Label HONEST JON'S RECORDS (UK). More from HONEST JON'S RECORDS (UK). The Viking Of Sixth Avenue.
