Eri Yamamoto’s CD “Life” (AUM fidelity) is a generous new collection of unique songs, performed with her longstanding trio partners, bassist David Ambrosio and drummer Ikuo Takeuchi. As the album title suggests, the music portrays a wide range of her life experiences - from joyful to introspective, reflecting the vibrancy of New York City and exploring mysteries of nature and memory. These songs are rich in memorable melodies, and cover a broad palette of textures and colors. “Life” features a dozen brand new compositions, and fresh takes on two earlier songs which have been crowd favorites at her concerts. This recording is Eri’s tenth as a leader, and its release marks her twentieth anniversary as a working jazz musician in NYC.
