Isao Suzuki's Blow-Up is virtuosity and class all rolled up into one. A great combination of upbeat blues and mellow grooves! The album was awarded "Jazz of Japan" Award and the Jazz Disk Award of "Swing Journal" in 1973.
Touring with the Micky Curtis Band, Tsuyoshi Yamamoto had the chance to explore several international experiences that he would later use on his 1974 album, Misty. as he worked with this band in France, England and Switzerland. On Midnight Sugar the Tsuyoshi Yamamoto Trio plays two of Tsuyoshis own blues improvisations followed by jazz ballads that became standards for the Trio. The combination of these titles is nothing but exceptional.
The Yamamoto Trio's Midnight Sugar was recorded March 1, 1974 at Aoi Studio, Tokyo. It earned the Best Engineering Award and Jazz Disc Award of Swing Journal in 1974. It is Yamamotos unmistakable skill and his jazz feeling which adds that certain touch of liveliness and spontaneity and makes Midnight Sugar a unique experience. This Piano Trio will mesmerize you with this great collection of standards, superb musicianship and awesome sonics. You are sure to listen to this one over and over.
The Yamamoto Trio's Misty is a Stoned Cold Killer! A1 Reference Material!!! Misty earned both the "Best Engineering" Award and Jazz Dick Award of Swing Journal in 1974. Recorded at Aoi Studio, Tokyo, on August 7, 1974. Tsuyoshi Yamamoto is highly musical and his expressions natural, neither overly technical nor serious, his performance is relaxed and melodious.
