Yuko Mabuchi Plays Miles Davis is a tribute to the music of legendary Jazz trumpeter Miles Davis. It features 5 tracks written by Miles Davis plus 3 original compositions by Yuko Mabuchi. For this special album, recorded live in concert in Stereo and Multichannel DSD 256 (and exclusively available in DSD 256 at NativeDSD Music), the Yuko Mabuchi Trio - Yuko Mabuchi (piano), Del Atkins (bass) and Bobby Breton (drums) - is joined by trumpeter JJ Kirkpatrick from the Sophisticated Lady Jazz Quartet (albums also available in DSD from NativeDSD Music). With this line-up of musicians, it is a musical adventure you won't want to miss.
Yuko Mabuchi’s debut recording on Yarlung, Yuko Mabuchi Trio, was a top seller in the Yarlung catalog and at the NativeDSD Music store last year. Yuko deserves this success.
Yuko Mabuchi Trio thrills audiences with every concert. Her January performance opening for Branford Marsalis in the 1,800 seat Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall whet international jazz appetites. She next headlined the Arlington Jazz Festival in Texas, and Yuko Mabuchi Trio performed in Blues Alley in April as part of the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington D. C. European and Asian stages beckon.
The Absolute Sound published a rave review of her recent concert at the Segerstrom Center in Costa Mesa, CA in January 2019. Elaborating further, Rick Brown writes “Yuko Mabuchi combines sexy athleticism at the piano with serious musical poetry. The young fans in the house responded to both with great enthusiasm. So did audience members in their 70s and 80s. This was a fast up tempo set resulting in thunderous applause with audience members yelling and stamping their feet for the standing ovation at the end…. I recognized some audience members who had driven from San Francisco or flown in from Hong Kong and different parts of the country for the event…. Yuko signed CDs and LPs at intermission with the longest lines I’ve seen in years…. She returned for another hour to greet audience members and sign more after the second half of the concert. “
