Yuko Mabuchi Trio


This product is currently unavailable.

Yuko Mabuchi Trio is the debut album from this excellent Jazz Trio featuring pianist Yuko Mabuchi, Del Atkins on bass, and Bobby Breton on drums.  It is the #1 Top DSD Seller on the Yarlung label at NativeDSD (which is saying a lot given the many fine Yarlung DSD releases we have at the store) and is one of our most popular Jazz DSD releases.  It is now available in a Stereo DSD 512 edition created by Tom Caulfield at the NativeDSD Mastering Lab.

Producer Bob Attiyeh from Yarlung says “I first heard the Yuko Mabuchi Trio at Catalina Bar and Grill in Hollywood. The trio performed for the annual SAPPA gala, a non-profit organization for which Yuko volunteers as accompanist for the Watts-Willowbrook Youth Symphony. I went home that night, thinking about the trio’s electrifying sound and Yuko’s dynamism. I telephoned the next day, asking if Yuko wanted to make a debut album with her trio. “Yes!” she said. We held our live concert recording session on March 31st, 2017. My friend Billy Mitchell was an integral part of this project, organizing rehearsals and assisting in the overall production of this recording. His depth of experience, superb instincts, good humor, and organizational ability have made this project an enduring pleasure.

Dr. Antonio Damasio generously invited us back to the Brain and Creativity Institute’s Cammilleri Hall at USC for this concert and recording. This is the gem of a concert hall designed by Yasuhisa Toyota and lovingly built by Antonio and Hanna Damasio, where Yarlung recorded our first jazz albums with Sophisticated Lady jazz quartet. The superb concert hall acoustics and the cozy 90 seat size make Cammilleri ideal for all sorts of music but especially nice for an intimate jazz concert like this. If only more jazz clubs sounded like Cammilleri Hall!

Yarlung’s engineers Arian Jansen and Tom Caulfield joined me for this project which we recorded in Stereo on analog tape and in DSD 256, and in 5 Channel Surround Sound in DSD 256. Special thanks to our family at the Brain and Creativity Institute: Ivan Zawinul, Mario Gurrola, Denise Nakamura, Faith Ishibashi, and Cinthya Nuñez, who make all great things possible. Much appreciation also to Brittany Welsh at the Radisson Midtown Hotel at USC who made us feel so welcome.”
