Chris Amemiya is a true renaissance man. By day he's a research molecular biologist expanding our understanding of the evolution of change in vertebrates and stem cells, by night he's expanding our understanding of harmonic changes as a trombonist of the highest order. The way Chris gets around the trombone will leave trombone players shaking their heads in admiration and inspiration. He brings to mind Allen Hermann, a renowned physicist and trombonist who recorded with Carl Fontana - no apologies for the day job!
Great band, great music, great playing from everyone. From every consideration, Chris Amemiya's project is exemplary. It's a live recording drawing the listener in with all the excitement, discovery and involvement of a great night in a great performance space. The recording is technically and musically superb - you are in the best seat in the house, intimately hearing every exciting detail in a tonally superb stereo image.
Bet you can't just listen once!
