Eri Yamamoto: piano
Alan Hampton: bass

This is Eri Yamamoto's second release, made in 2002, a very different time in the World! This beauty was co-produced with legendary recording engineer, David Baker.
Arriving on record fully formed, her exquisite touch on the keys and gift for indelible melodies in clear abundance. Self-released on CD in 2002; made available digitally for the first time here on bandcamp in October 2020. CDs were previously available only direct from Eri at performances (& from CD Baby), and are down to the last dozens.
Eri's first & third albums (all self-released) are up here now too!
I really can not express why I love this as much as I do. It is out-of-reach for a guy like me and hard to explain the feelings that I feel when I listen to it. The first McCraven album I bought a couple weeks ago ((4 to the right;-), I played it twice, just 2 tracks at a time... It's making me humble because it feels bigger than me, and careful because I don't know where it is taking me. And all of that, is the definition of art. At least, for me it is.... PlayItLoud!
