57 Grove Street, N.Y.C,

Eri Yamamoto Trio

Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday

Eri Yamamoto Trio @ Arthur's Tavern in NYC.
7pm~8pm / 8:30pm~9:30pm (2sets)

Pianist Eri Yamamoto jump-started her career in this slot, and now that her talents are being sought after far beyond the West Village, this is the place to hear all the new ideas brewing in an already compositionally agile mind. And, in the best jazz tradition, her trio remains stable enough to grow with her.
