After some 13 years living in the U.S. (New York City) after moving from Kyoto, Japan, acoustic pianist Eri Yamamoto's contemporary jazz style has not only come of age, but has fully blossomed, flowered, and is as beautiful as any mature rose. This trio recording – with veteran bassist David Ambrosio and longtime drummer Ikuo Takeuchi – shows Yamamoto's fluid melodic elements, sprawling vistas of color, and her innate common sense in stringing together lines of passion and cleanliness. While remaining in a modern vein, her piano style reflects classical training, post-bop sensibilities, and progressive ideals.
