Yamamoto, Tsuyoshi Trio – “Live At The Misty” – [Three Blind Mice]
This is jazz the way I remember hearing it growing up, brilliantly played by pianoist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto and his trio. The tempo change-ups (particularly on “The Loving Touch”) bring back great memories. The drums and bass are smooth and polished, and the piano converses right along with them to mix up a cocktail of sound intoxicating to the senses. Enjoy.
