The sound quality of this set by a jazz piano trio, recorded live to tape with an AKG C24 stereo tube microphone, reveals all. The sounds of Mabuchi's piano, Del Atkins's double bass, and Bobby Breton's drums is stellar in every way, but especially the piano, an instrument whose sound is very hard to capture convincingly. The overall transparency and sense of three-dimensional space is intense and sensational. And Mabuchi is tremendously talented - this is one audiophile recording in which the talent is commensurate with the sound quality. -Michael Fremer, Stereophile
Reference LP & bearing the seal of the LAOC Audio Society, this 45 RPM live recording is "blow you away" wonderful! A reference LP from the first note, it is as dynamic as reel to reel, as quiet as may be done in this medium, and realistic to the max. Recorded with no transistors in the circuit, tube microphones, a tube reel to reel tape deck, all-tube cutting chain, and no compression whatsoever! Cut by Bernie Grundman, personally. Fanatically purist and perfect, you are there on a top sound system. 100% analog! - Positive Feedback

Pianist Yuko Mabuchi, Del Atkins, bass, and Bobby Breton, drums, performed for a full house at the Brain and Creativity Institute's intimate Cammilleri Hall on March 31, 2017. Yarlung recorded this classic performance in this intimate jewel of a concert hall. Yuko, Del and Bobby performed as a cohesive unit, and subsequent concert bookings will no doubt spread their music around the world.
This is Volume 2, featuring Jazz Medley, Japanese Medley, Sona's Song and Sonny Rollins: St. Thomas.
Audiophiles and jazz buffs have praised Yuko's work in myriad publications. Positive Feedback's Robert H. Levy, posting to Yarlung News, enthuses "Yuko Mabuchi plays the ivories with the touch of an angel and the understanding of an artist many times her young age. She is backed by seasoned musicians with strong drive plus an acute sense of playing with and not over the pianist. This is Yarlung's third jazz album recorded like you wish all performances were recorded: Listening is just like being there. All that's missing here is the expensive tickets and sticky floor!"
