At 8:30PM, the Eri Yamamoto Trio perform. This new album of her all-new, all-original pieces are all brought to life with ebullience and deep sensitivity by her long-running Trio partners, bassist David Ambrosio and drummer Ikuo Takeuchi. Half of these pieces were composed as a new soundtrack suite to the 1932 silent film,"I was born, but...", by Japanese director asujiro Ozu, one of the most important filmmakers in cinema history. The film deals with the unchanging human situation that we don't choose which family we're born into, and the problems that come with this. While Ozu's film is serious and sometimes heartbreaking, it also has lightness and humor; Yamamoto's compositions accentuate this emotional complexity. The other five pieces, equally compelling and far ranging in mood, were composed through capturing Eri's experiences living in NYC and her touring around the world over the last two years. Cover is $10. Please visit
