How long does it take to become a great jazz musician? Would you believe five and a half years? That would seem to be the case with Eri Yamamoto who abandoned a budding classical career half a decade ago to pursue jazz studies at the New School. Yamamoto had no jazz background whatsoever when she arrived in New York from Kyoto-something I can personally attest to, having heard her stumble through standards some years back at the Loisaida bar that is now Manitoba's. Saloon din tended to drown out Yamamoto's trio until she started pulling out her originals, the attentive silence that greeted them clued me in that fresh ideas were on the way.

As the denizens of Arthur's Tavern in Greenwich Village undoubtedly know, pianist Eri Yamamoto is one of jazz's most dynamic new talents. Her new CD, Three Feel, gives the listener an idea of what her audiences are treated to each week. Joining her on this trio date are drummer Ikuo Takeuchi and bassist Alan Hampton.

Colors , the newest offering by pianist and Arthur's Tavern regular Eri Yamamoto, is comprised primarily of striking originals, entitled with Chaplinesque brevity and marked by an eloquent use of understatement, giving Yamamoto, drummer Ikuo Takeuchi, and bassist Ben Street generous space in which they can all work effectively.

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.

On the surface, Japanese pianist Eri Yamamoto may be the most conventional artist on the intrepid AUM Fidelity label. Yet there are virtues in Yamamoto’s music that are rarely heard elsewhere. One is the depth of her rapport with a rhythm section that has gigged with her regularly for over 13 years, making whole a steady stream of new compositions from her prolific muse. Another is Yamamoto’s ability to evoke ephemeral feelings and concepts with such precise intonation. On this new album’s opener, “Memory Dance,” she commemorates deceased friends with lyrical riffs of increasing intensity, altering their emphasis and tempo ever so slightly without milking the resonance-and trusting bassist David Ambrose and drummer Ikuo Takeuchi will provide the shading while honoring her subtlety.

The deeply lyrical and prolific pianist/composer Eri Yamamoto returns quickly to record with Firefly, a brand new collection of wholly original and indelible songs, this time performed live in intimate concert, with her decade-long devoted trio of bassist David Ambrosio and drummer Ikuo Takeuchi. Following so directly on their previous acclaimed and rife with riches album, The Next Page (itself following In Each Day, Something Good and Redwods), Yamamoto s consistently luminous writing, and the trio s telepathic performances thereof, is astonishing. The heft of emotional weight and remarkably honed craft once again on full display here is made all the more remarkable for their ability to make it sound so effortless.

For her first disc as a leader away from her trio, Japanese pianist Eri Yamamoto has chosen to work in duo with four different partners: master bassist William Parker, veteran downtown New York saxophonist Daniel Carter and percussionists Hamid Drake and Federico Ughi. Classically trained, Yamamoto dedicated her life to jazz after a revelatory experience hearing pianist Tommy Flanagan in Central Park on a visit to her sister in 1995. This disc proves that her strong showing on William Parker's excellent Cornmeal Dance (AUM Fidelity, 2007) was no fluke.

An intimate duet of Japanese pianist-composer Eri Yamamoto and Quebecois pianist Yves Léveillé. Being complementary melodic and techically precise, they give the impression at times to listen to one pianist with four hands and a multiplied inspiration. A great example of the creative collaboration between two passionate yet disciplined artists.

One of the coolest albums ever cut by Japanese wood flute player Hozan Yamamoto – a set that has him working with very groovy backings from the Sharps & Flats ensemble – who almost give the whole thing an MPS label blending of funky jazz and world music sounds! The approach is wonderful – a bit more upbeat and swinging than some of Yamamoto's other records, as Nobuo Hara leads the larger group with a totally cool sound – which makes the flute lines a sweet exotic touch over straightforward, soul-drenched, big band jazz! We might even link the sound to some of Dorothy Ashby's grooviest albums for Chess/Cadet – although with flute, instead of harp.
