The Sounds of the Dolomites
Yamanaka Electric Female Trio
YAMANAKA ELECTRIC FEMALE TRIO
With fifteen recordings so far and a unique talent, Japanese musician Yamanaka has established herself as one of the most influential and sought-after pianists on the contemporary jazz scene. Her pieces take all directions - swing, rhythmic, melodic – to create an endless carousel of original musical solutions, always astounding and grounded in an enviable technique, as in the compositions forming “The Spheres”, for which she is joined by an all-female rhythm section featuring Ilaria Capalbo on electric bass and double bass and Karen Teperberg on drums.
Location: Val di Fiemme, Corno Nero-Pala Santa mountain group, Passo di Lavazé. When you walk along the forestry paths through the woods of spruces, pastures and peat bogs of Passo Lavazé, you can stare at the white towers of Latemar. An ancient legend says they were dolls dressed in silk that a witchcraft turned into cold rocks. Southwards, Corno Nero and Corno Bianco look over the meadows of Passo Oclini.
