Tsuyoshi Yamamoto - Midnight Sugar

(2 12" 45 RPM Discs)

  (Item #: yamammidni_45) 



Sonic Grade: B

[We haven't played a copy of this record in years, but back in the day we liked it, so let's call it a "B" with the caveat that the older the review, the more likely we are to have changed our minds.]

This 45 RPM Three Blind Mice 180g Double LP has DEMO DISC SOUND! The 33 RPM versions were pretty darn amazing but these 45s take the sound of this recording to an entirely new level.

Tsuyoshi Yamamoto - Midnight Sugar

Mastering at 33 Vs. 45

  (Item #: yamammidni_33v45) 



The 33 RPM versions were pretty darn amazing but these 45s take the sound of this recording to an entirely new level.

There are a couple of quite obvious benefits to mastering this music at 45 RPM. One is that Yamamoto tends to use his right hand in a percussive manner, which creates tracking problems on most any set up. At 45 RPM the mastering engineer is able to cut those transients, full of difficult to deal with harmonics, much more cleanly and accurately. The result is a sense of "ease" that you don't hear on the 33.

Tsuyoshi Yamamoto Trio - Blues to East

Reviewed in 2015

  (Item #: yamamblues_2015) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

On this album there's almost none of that "introspective noodling jazz" that the Japanese are infamous for. I love Midnight Sugar as much as the next guy, but too much of that kind of music is wearying.

Yamamoto's Trio wants to show that it can play good old fashioned straight ahead American piano jazz with the best of them. I hear echoes of Bill Evans in Yamamoto's playing. Supposedly he was a big Errol Garner fan as well.

Tsuyoshi Yamamoto Trio -Red Gardenia

Reviewed in 2011

  (Item #: yamamredga_0311) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This SUPER RARE very nice looking Philips Japanese Direct-to-Disc LP has excellent sound. The piano is especially dynamic and rich. Imagine a Three Blind Mice piano date recorded Direct-to-Disc -- that's the sound of this album.
