Description:Single Layer SACD = Ultimate Audiophile Edition!

In 2014, the Japanese independent jazz label Venus Records began releasing its "best of the best" albums from its deep catalog on single layer SACD, the ultimate audiophile format. (Please note that single layer SACDs require an SACD player for playback. They will not play on a regular CD player.)

Since his stunning debut in 1974 with the now world-famous audiophile recordings for the Three Blind Mice label, Japanese pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto has built a career that now spans four decades. He now returns to Venus Records with a brand-new trio album Gentle Blues, his first recording for the label in 14 years.

Yamamoto's bluesy and sometimes funky piano style is buoyed by the strong, swinging support of bassist Hiroshi Kagawa and drummer Toshio Osumi. Together, they make muscular and uplifting music. Materials are mostly well-known standards, rounded out by a Japanese song "Tsuki No Sabaku (Desert on the Moon)" and Yamamoto's original composition "Gentle Blues."

As per the high standard set by Venus, the sound quality of this CD is also excellent. Recommended!

The vinyl LP version is available here.

Recorded at Sony Music Studios in Tokyo on January 23, 2013. Gate-fold paper sleeve edition. Single Layer SACD.
