Yosuke Alone

CD (Item 614739) King (Japan), 1974 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.80 5

Solo piano from one of Japan's most inventive talents on the keyboard – really stretching out here in a warmly acoustic setting, in a style that's quite freewheeling and open, yet without some of the more avant moments of later years too! There's a sense of balance here that's really beautiful – as Yosuke blocks out these bold shapes in sound – stacking them together as he builds the music into great towers of tone – seemingly random at points, yet always coming together with an inherent sense of order that leaves us breathless by the end! Tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Communication", "Paraphrase", "Flight From Autumn Leaves", and "Closing Theme".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
