"It has been two full years since Eri Yamamoto's last album of wonderfully melodious songs; she has been busy playing for rapt audiences across Europe and Japan, as well as the Eastern U.S. and Canada. Folks around the world get effusive when they hear her music, and that is an organically beautiful reality. Ms. Yamamoto has also been busy writing, and The Next Page presents a treasure trove of all new compositions. Swinging eloquence, luminous lyricism, a deep rapport with her long-standing trio, and refreshingly original material are the key factors to this music. She breathes new life into the jazz piano trio format every time she plays. Because there was so much new material when it came time to record, it was decided to format this album as two distinct sets, akin to hearing her live in a jazz club, with a short break in between. While it was recorded in highest fidelity sound at Systems Two Studio in Brooklyn, the presentation is based on her regular engagement at Arthur's Tavern, NYC -- every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night -- which is a supreme rarity for a jazz (or any genre!) group in the modern era, as well as her popular appearances at Cornelia Street Cafe, NYC."
