Eri Yamamoto TrioNext Page ... CD
Aum Fidelity, 2012. Used ... $5.99
Beautiful sounds from the trio of pianist Eri Yamamoto – a player who's relatively new to our ears, but who really impresses us with her tone and timing on this set! The album's one of the more inside we've heard on the Aum Fidelity label – and almost has the appeal of some post-Bill Evans trio material from years back – the kind of piano work that's richly expressive, yet in very subtle ways – a careful balance that's further helped by the work of David Ambrosio on bass and Ikuo Takeuchi on drums. Titles include "Whisky River", "Night Shadows", "Green Grows", "The Next Page", "Sparkle Song", "Catch The Clouds", and "Swimming Song". CD

✨✧ William ParkerFor Those Who Are – Still (3CD set) ... CD
Aum Fidelity, 2015. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful box of work from bassist William Parker – and a set that actually features three very different projects, all brought together in a single set! First up is a CD that features a long piece commissioned by The Kitchen – "For Fannie Lou Hamer" – with music by Parker in an ensemble that includes JD Parran on reeds, Ravi Best on trumpet, Masahiko Kono on trombone, and a bit of vocals from Leena Conquest. That same CD features shorter pieces grouped under the title Vermeer – dedicated to the painter, and featuring some beautiful, soulful work from Parker on bass, Darryl Foster on soprano sax, Eri Yamamoto on piano, and Leena Conquest on voice. CD two features Red Giraffe With Dreadlocks – a lot better than it sounds from the title, and spiritual sounds from an ensemble that mixes core jazz elements with some wider global musical ideas – featuring Parker on bass, Hamid Drake on drums, Rob Brown on alto, Bill Cole on double reed instruments, Klaas Heckman on flute, Molla Sylla on mbira and ngoni, and Sangeeta Bandyopadhyay on electronic shruti box. Both Sylla and Bandyopadhyay vocalize a bit – and titles include "The Giraffe Cances", "Where Do You Send The Poem", "Tour Of The Flying Poem", and "Souls Have Fallen Like Rain". Last is Ceremonies For Those Who Are Still – which features a core trio with Parker on bass and flutes, Charles Gayle on piano and saxes, and Mike Reed on drums – augmented by the NFM Orchestra, who shade in the jazz performances with some subtle colors and tones – quite an unusual match between these talents. The CD also features a long improvisation – "Escapade For Sonny" – running over 25 minutes, and just featuring the core trio of Parker, Gayle, and Reed. Packaged in a very nice box, with a booklet of notes! CD

✨✧ Isao Suzuki TrioBlack Orpheus (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $28.99
A beautifully spare session from the mid 70s – one that features bass and cello from Isao Suzuki – stretching out here in a sound that's totally unique! The trio's a great one – with Donald Bailey on drums and Tsuyoshi Yamamoto on both acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes – the latter of which sounds amazing next to Suzuki mellow-stepping lines. If you've heard any of Suzuki's other albums from the period, the style is somewhat similar – quite soulful throughout, but with an easygoing, open feel that's quite different than many American sessions of this nature – and which makes it clear that the bassist is the leader, not the pianist! Titles include a great version of "Manha De Carnaval", plus "Angel Eyes", "In A Sentimental Mood", "Who Can I Turn To", and "Blues". CD
