Big in Japan, Part 2: Osaka & the Eri Yamamoto Connection

Karl Ackermann By

Sign in to view read count
Given Eri Yamamoto's preference for the more intimate formations of duo and trio, it is somewhat surprising that she has not recorded a solo album before Piano Solo: Live in Benicàssim (Blau Records, 2017). It was worth the wait. In live settings the pianist has been known to play solo versions of her trio compositions, as well as spontaneous improvisations and these have proven to be audience favorites. In the environs of this quaint Spanish town, Yamamoto renders brilliant melodies and subtle shadings with the expressiveness of a lyricist.
