The Yamamoto Trio Misty 180g 45RPM Vinyl 2LP
180g 45RPM 2LP Edition Mastered by Tohru Kotetsu and Pressed at RTI!
Few, if any, international audiophile jazz recordings have maintained the kind of deep and profound influence over techniques and even entire label repertoire as Three Blind Mice's. The of-the-moment realism of Yoshihiko Kannari's recordings and production aesthetic of producer and label head Takeshi "Tee" Fujii have been the benchmark to match. It is to their immense credit that signature recordings like Blow Up, Midnight Sugar and Misty have yet to be matched over 40 years later.
The Yamamoto Trio's Misty is a stone cold killer and top of the line reference material recorded at Aoi Studio in Tokyo, on August 7, 1974. Touring with the Micky Curtis Band through France, England and Switzerland, Yamamoto had the chance to explore several international experiences that he would later use as inspiration here. Misty earned both the 'Best Engineering Award' and 'Jazz Disk Award' from Swing Journal in 1974. Yamamoto is highly musical and his expressions are natural throughout, neither overly technical nor serious, his performance is both relaxed and melodious.
One of the most sought-after titles from the acclaimed Three Blind Mice catalog, Misty is presented here in a sterling 180g 45rpm 2LP edition mastered by Tohru Kotetsu and pressed at RTI which lives up to and surpasses your most demanding audiophile judgments!
