Eri Yamamoto, piano

Dave Ambrosio, bass

Ikuo Takeuchi, drums

 

Eri Yamamoto and her longstanding trio partners -- bassist David Ambrosio and drummer Ikuo Takeuchi — have developed a unique sound and repertoire, and built a loyal following in New York and abroad. They have toured the U. S., Canada, Australia, Europe, and Japan, with appearances at major festivals. Eri’s compositions portray a wide range of her experiences -- from joyful to introspective — and reflect the vibrancy of New York City and her explorations of the mysteries of nature and memory. 

 

"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."
-Daniel A. Brown, DownBeat
