Jazz pianists could be divided into two types as mentioned below. One is a pianist of masculine plays or strong touch, who was just born in order to make swing. Famous female pianists in Japan, Yamanaka Chihiro and Uehara Hiromi, they belong to the group.

Another is a pianist who plays feminine willowy piano, is full of lyricism and can come into his or her own on ballads or bossa nova songs, like Bill Evans. The group has a Japanese female pianist Kishino Yoshiko who released her ballad album Tenderness that we introduce here.

Kishino Yoshiko published her first leading album Fairy Tale in 1995. She plays piano with great muse and perfume of motherhood which most males truly long for. Tenderness is a ballad album she released in 2000. They weaved the two elements so politely, putting her poetic turn of mind in the songs.

The ballads are just like heavenly music of purification, or goddess's moderate embrace endorsed by her tears and happiness. Every song gives out affectionate glamour of a sacred lady and so we might think like that after listening.


Yoshiko composed five songs and covered six tunes from the jazz standard and classical music in Tenderness. So this album could let you get satisfied with her original sense of composition enough. The album would be the best for an entrance of Kishino Yoshiko.

Whenever your heart needs some help, it is sure that Tenderness warmly nestles close to your scary mind. Some might shed tears calmly. This album includes their performances which seem to dip even the tears with hands of purity.
