Description:Yasukuni Terashima is a well-known, iconoclastic jazz critic and avid audiophile who has published numerous books on jazz and audio in Japan. At age 70 he launched his own label, Terashima Records, and began releasing jazz CDs and LPs that reflects his ideals for jazz music and how records should sound.

Easter Parade is an audiophile-grade CD that presents an excellent piano-bass-drums trio, led by drummer Akira Matsuo and featuring a wonderful pianist Sachiko Yasui. The sound is punchy and energetic. There are the big bass, snappy drums and shimmering cymbals, and warm piano tones.

Selected tunes are varied and interesting. Aside from some standards, there are quite a few original compositions by jazz pianists old and new (Kenny Drew, Thelonious Monk, Lafayette Harris Jr., Tim Richards, Michel Sardaby, etc.) that have attractive melodies. The overall mood of the album is passionate and it swings. Available on both CD and vinyl LP, this album is recommended for both performance and sound quality!

Recorded December 1, 2012 at Yokohama Landmark Studio, Japan.
