pic   An Evening with Pianist ERI YAMAMOTO
Monday, Oct.2, 2017 TICKETS

Eri Yamamoto is one of jazz's most original and compelling pianists and composers. Her music portrays a wide range of her experiences from joyful to introspective, reflecting the vibrancy of New York City, while exploring mysteries of nature and memory. She has a loyal worldwide following, and has toured the U. S., Canada, Australia, Europe, and Japan, with appearances at major festivals.

"4-Stars. Her CD Firefly reaffirms Yamamoto's standing as a contemporary pianist of the highest order. While she has a deft sense of harmony and note selection, not to mention sheer chops, her virtuosity never gets in the way of playing it straight from the heart." DownBeat

This concert is presented with the support of the Embassy of Japan.
