Editorial Reviews

Richie Beirach certainly doesn t lack personality! He has been
strengthened by 40 years of practice, in which he combines the
discipline of classical training with the vertigo of improvisation.
Joins Outnote Records Jazz and the City collection, which previously
featured releases by fellow pianists Kenny Werner (New York), Eric
Watson (Paris), and Bill Carrothers (Excelsior).
Richie has a deep knowledge of Japan no less than 26 visits since
the 70s, with numerous concerts and recordings and doesn t hide his
admiration for its impressive culture and respect for art and music in
all its forms. Under his fingers, Tokyo reveals itself in its duality, at the
crossroads of tradition and modernity.
His impressions follow like a series of snapshots presented in the form
of haikus, the purest of poetic forms. Whether evoking the Japan of
times immemorial (Kabuki theatre, stone gardens) or the Japan of today
(bullet trains, Kurosawa), he appears alternatively ascetic or dense.

1. Haiku (Intro): Tokyo Lights at Night

3. Haiku 2: Butterfly
4. Haiku 3: Cherry Blossom Time
5. Haiku 4: Takemitsu-San
6. Haiku 5: Bullet Train
7. Haiku 6: Togashi-San

14. Haiku 11: Tragedy in Sendai
15. Haiku 12: Shibumi
16. Eyes of the Heart
