Fiona's Comments

Nice straight-ahead tune to end the weekend right. Album is a few years old, but new to me, so I'm running the track now. Yamamoto is involved in a current project called Wrestle Jazz that makes jazz arrangements of Japanese wrestler theme songs, which may seem like a novelty, but is actually quite good. I'm hoping to feature a track from that album soon. In the meantime, enjoy some of the jazz goodness Yamamoto is capable of.

About the Album

The Archi-tet is my first album with original compositions. "A Story and a walk" is the most straight-ahead swinging tune from them. Other tunes are more funky and modern. Personnel: Aki Yamamoto (composer/arranger and bass), Miki Hirose (trumpet), Mike Wilkens (tenor sax), Dave DeMotta (keyboards), and Yutaka Uchida (drums).

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
