Michael Fremer's 100 Recommended All-Analog LP Reissues Worth Owning – Rated 33/100!
Pianist Yuko Mabuchi performs four tunes including a Jazz Medley, Japanese Medley, Sona's Song and Sonny Rollins' St. Thomas.
Yuko dedicated this release to the 25th Anniversary of the Los Angeles and Orange County Audio Society, the largest association of audiophiles on the planet, and to the 70th Birthday of Robert H. Levi, Yarlung's societys illustrious President and CEO.
If Mabuchis playing can be described as tasteful, economical, and lyrical, it should also be noted that her rapid single-note runs are impeccably executed. The performances benefit from an exceptionally realistic recording that stands out for its in-the-room ambience and tonal clarity.
