In the age of one-hit wonders and a constantly rotating cast of pop-stars there are but a few true artists that have both stood the test of time and continue to break new ground. Ryuichi Sakamoto is one of these rare gems. Few, if any, have a comparably diverse résumé and fan base. Young and old from all cultures and creeds have found inspiration in Ryuichi's music. Ryuichi Sakamoto is a composer, musician, producer, actor, and environmental activist; a true renaissance man. Now he is back with his first album as a trio since 1996, simply called ‘THREE'.

Ryuichi has a vast range of musical endeavors; from pioneering early electronic music in his first group; Yellow Magic Orchestra, to globally inspired rock albums, classical compositions, opera, and over thirty film scores. Ryuichi's catalog even includes video game soundtracks and mobile ringtones. Almost as expansive is his array of prestigious awards; an Academy Award, two Golden Globes, a Grammy, the Order of the Cavaleiro Admissão from the government of Brazil, and in July 2009, he was named an ‘Officier’ of the coveted Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from the government of France. With such a plethora of activities, accolades and interests it can be difficult to place Sakamoto into one category. The one, clear strand connecting it all is his unparalleled passion.

It was in the autumn of 2011 that Ryuichi resurrected his piano, cello, and violin trio for a European Tour, accompanied by cellist Jacques Morelenbaum, and violinist Judy Kang. Immediately following the highly successful tour, which showcased new material alongside Ryuichi's timeless compositions, the trio entered a recording studio in Porto, Portugal to record a new album. The album, titled "THREE" includes new arrangements of Ryuichi's trio works, freshly recorded and re-imagined.

Ryuichi Sakamoto will be performing at Meltdown festival with Alva Noto at the Royal Festival Hall in London, on June 19th.

Decca Press Release

After recording three albums in the early '00s with Brazilian musicians Jaques and Paula Morelenbaum, Japanese pianist and composer Ryuichi Sakamoto rejoins Jaques (on cello) and violinist Judy Kang for Three, a beautiful set of trio music. The songs selected for this project are ones which will mostly be familiar to his longtime fans, but not these intimate arrangements for his trio. There are movie themes, both ones he is famous for (Merry Xmas, Mr Lawrence & The Last Emperor) and more recent works (Death of a Samurai). There are also pieces from his solo albums, many of which he re-released on his '09 retrospective for solo piano, Playing The Piano. The new trio arrangements of those songs, such as "Still Life in A" and "Nostalgia," are richer without losing the intimacy of the earlier recordings. That "presence" is enhanced by the excellent recording quality here, which makes you feel like you're sitting right in the room with the trio. The songs are uniformly gorgeous, although Mr. Sakamoto isn't afraid to throw in a hint of discordance from time to time, as in the final section of "Bibo no Aozora."

The packaging of the Three CD is also noteworthy, at least the Avex edition I bought. The CD booklet multi-folds around the outside of the digipak, something I had not seen before, at least not in this fashion. Included are multiple photos of the artists.
