Chihiro Yamanaka is a Japanese jazz pianist and composer. Guilty Pleasure her post bop recording released in 2016 on Blue Note Records in Japan…Speaking of melodies of jazz, as is the commonly recognized equation, melodies of original works very often tend to be all instrumental-focused. Yet, some of you may expect more vocal-friendly, naturally-go-well-with-lyrics melodies to be created sometimes. Then this, the latest from a prominent jazz artist/piano virtuoso Chihiro Yamanaka, is just right for you. Recorded in NY with familiar members from her own regular trio, the 11-track album carries 8 original tunes of her own out of which some depict a refreshing afternoon sunshine, some hinting almost heartbreaking melancholy, or some being wrapped in an electro-mood. The other cover numbers of her choice include a famous jazz standard with a surreal-arrangement and Japanese rock band Godiego’s tune (nice surprise!), fully and notably representing the Yamanaka-ism herein.
