アルバム・レビュー:山中千尋「ローザ」 Album Reviews: ‘ROSA’ by Yamanaka Chihiro


 The kind of music I want to listen to changes depending on the situation. I mainly listen to J-pop when I’m on my way to somewhere. It definitely lift my spirits. However I tend to listen to foreign music or jazz occasionally when I enjoy some alcohol at night to be relaxed.  

山中千尋 Live In New York ~So Long~


 Actually, I don’t know about jazz so much and one of my best friends sends me a CD as a present every year. This year it was an album by a Japanese, beautiful female pianist. The pianist is Yamanaka Chihiro and the title of the album is ‘ROSA’.

 In addition to some jazz standards which are famous enough that even I know, you can see a jazz version of Beethoven’s fifth symphony, this year marks the 250th anniversary of his birth, and a couple of songs written by Yamanaka. It is difficult for me to evaluate how good her performance is, but I can feel the tenderness which hugs me gently from the sound of her piano. It soothes me a lot. I drink bourbon whiskey a lot in spite of myself. This album has a DVD so you can enjoy it, too.
