Yoshida Brothers 15th Anniversary Special vol.1: Move

Yoshida Brothers 15th Anniversary Special Promotion Vol. 1:

“Move”

YOSHIDA_BROTHERS_MOVE_BOOK_COVER

Move (2000)

btn-buynow

Their groundbreaking second album, “Move”, features more original compositions than its predecessor and shows the brothers expanding their musical horizons, incorporating a variety of instruments beyond the tsugaru-shamisen and exploring numerous disparate musical influences.
One song features the otsuzumi, a small taiko (Japenese drum), while three songs showcase a cajon – an Afro-Peruvian hand drum popular in Spanish flamenco music.
Wakimizu from Move

The release of Move proved that Ibuki was no fluke, and Yoshida Brothers were capable of producing musical masterpieces that bridged the sounds of old and new Japan. Using the traditional tsugaru-shamisen in a contemporary manner, the Yoshida Brothers produced an original sound that distinguished them as true musical visionaries.

Special Promotional Price! $56.94 => $28.98 until May 30th!

Yoshida Brothers 15th Anniversary Special vol.1: Ibuki

Yoshida Brothers 15th Anniversary Special Promotion vol. 1:

“Ibuki”

YOSHIDA_BROTHERS_IBUKI_BOOK_COVER

Ibuki (1999)

btn-buynow

Yoshida Brothers’ major debut album “Ibuki” sold over 100,000 copies within an year.
This was an incredible record as Tsugaru-shamisen or other traditional Japanese recordings (Those albums are rarely sold more than a thousand copies in Japan.)

In a traditional way,  you straighten up your back and face front when you play Shamisen. However, Yoshida Brothers move like guitar players when they play Shamisen.
Their unique Rock / Traditional style fascinated people who weren’t even familiar with Traditional style music.

ybh_18

Their Unique Style

This album features mostly traditional tsugaru-shamisen songs, though hints of the Brothers’ signature style are starting to emerge.

From the very beginning, it was clear that the group was bringing this ancient three-stringed instrument into modern times, interpreting its sound for a contemporary audience.
Ibuki deservedly turned the Yoshida Brothers into rock stars in their native land, another rarity for tsugaru-shamisen instrumentalists. Take a listen to where the journey began.

Check out the special offer item at Domo Store!
Offer good through May 30th.

Healdsburg Jazz Festival Leads Off With Weekend Blues Bash

HJF14logo_horz

 

Harmonica ace Charlie Musselwhite teams with stars of jazz, blues and Latin jazz

In just a week the 16th Healdsburg Jazz Festival blasts off in spectacular fashion with one of America’s blues legends – Charlie Musselwhite – holding down a weekend of creative pairings that promise revelations. Born in Mississippi, reared in Memphis and schooled in Chicago by blues masters like Muddy Waters and Junior Wells, Charlie – this year’s Healdsburg guest of honor – is set to unleash his harp virtuosity and gritty vocals in four different settings on Saturday, May 31, and Sunday, June 1, at the Jackson Theater.  The blues events launch when none other than guitar hero Elvin Bishop joins Charlie in an acoustic trio rounded out by country-style crooner-guitarist-banjo player Guy Davis. Charlie then switches gears for a blues-meets-Latin Jazz extravaganza featuring John Santos y Sus Soneros. With this project Charlie re-creates a unique 1999 album he released called Continental Drifter on which he performed Cuban standards such as “Chan Chan” and “Sabroso” with his own English-language lyrics.

On Sunday, the blues-jazz fireworks will ignite when tenor saxophone star Joshua Redman joins Charlie – first with the harpist sitting in with the saxophonist’s quartet, then vice versa, when Redman struts his stuff with the Charlie Musselwhite Group. What a fantastic opportunity this night will be for music fans to see firsthand how jazz is intimately connected to the blues.

The blues weekend also features a Sunday-morning brunch concert at Davis Family Vineyards with Guy Davis, who is equal parts actor, storyteller and blues avatar.  For full details on the Healdsburg Jazz Festival’s Celebrating the Blues Weekend, see the schedule below and visit healdsburgjazz.org.

There is more – much more – on offer at the 16th edition of the Healdsburg Jazz Festival.

Besides those listed above, other heavy hitters include:

Ron Carter, one of the most acclaimed bassists in jazz history, performs with a blazing quartet featuring sublime pianist Renee Rosnes, who is also leading her own show.

Poncho Sanchez brings his eight piece Latin Jazz Band to Rodney Strong Vineyards, displaying with sublime perfection and effortless virtuosity how Latin grooves can turn bebop riffs into dance music. Poncho’s opening act Claudia Villela, a haunting singer and pianist, will show why she’s become one of Brazil’s most heralded acts.

Renee Rosnes collaborates with her much-celebrated pianist-husband Bill Charlap for a grand piano duet, and as an added bonus vibes master Bobby Hutcherson – a towering figure in jazz – will sit in.

Marc Cary, a pianist of rare sensitivity, inaugurates the festival a “Tribute to Abbey Lincoln.” The great Ms. Lincoln employed Cary for 12 years, and he recently returned the favor with his critically acclaimed album For the Love of Abbey.

Saxophone grandmaster Charles Lloyd and tabla legend Zakir Hussain collaborate on a an interactive workshop free for students grades K-12 .

Bassist-composer Marcus Shelby and his 17 piece orchestra featuring vocalist Faye Carol return to the festival to present his acclaimed suite, Bound for the Promised Land, dedicated to escaped slave and activist Harriet Tubman.  Shelby will celebrate her with his big band and the 80-plus HJF Freedom Jazz Choir.

Violinist Mads Tolling pays a tribute to his great inspiration, violinist Jean Luc Ponty, in a fusion extravaganza at Spoonbar.

And that’s not all, either. Lovers of jazz, blues, R&B, wine and dancing can get their fixes at the Festival by checking out young jazz guitar hotshot Kai Devitt-Lee, Dixieland aces the Mission Gold Jazz Band and the New Horizon Stompers, the Groovemasters starring soul shouter Rhonda Benin, hard-swinging saxophonist Smith Dobson and his quartet, bassist Walter Savage’s Bucket List, ageless octogenarian drummer Benny Barth, Cuban percussion wizard Carlitos Medrano and his band Sabor de Mi Cuba, and drummer extraordinaire Lorca Hart, who will be holding forth at the Hotel Healdsburg, where festival musicians love to come and sit in.

At 16, the Healdsburg Jazz Festival continues to work its magic. Come and see why it’s considered to be one of the greatest small festivals in the world.
