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.

Eri’s First Book! 

“The Music of Eri Yamamoto"
Available on ↓

“The Music of Eri Yamamoto” gathers for the first time all 79 of Eri’s original compositions that appear on her 11 albums as a leader. These songs portray a wide range of Eri’s experiences – from joyful to introspective. reflecting the vibrancy of New York City and exploring mysteries of nature and memory. The songs in this book appear in Eri’s own manuscript, in the same form that she and her musicians read during their live performances. Also included are descriptions of almost all of the songs; information about her recordings; and many pictures of her and her fellow musicians, both in the recording studio and in live performance. Some of the musical highlights are “Life,” “Half Moon,” “You Are Welcome,” “Redwoods,” and “Benicàssim.”

New Release!
Piano Solo “ Live in Benicàssim "

Her most recent release, “Live in Benicàssim,” captures her 2017 solo piano concert in that picturesque Spanish town.  It is her first solo piano album, and her eleventh recording under her own name.
