Yosuke Yamashita - Paris 1998

Here's a rather nice trio show by Yamashita. I got this from dime and did quite a lot of editing to get this into better shape. Sound is not perfect, but it's still an FM recording, so... definitively listenable, in my opinion.

Yamashita is joined by French bassist Michel Benita and Swiss drummer Daniel Humair. Together, they make for a very fine trio!
Humair was subject of a couple of earlier posts:
Strasbourg 2008 (with Tony Malaby & Joachim Kühn)
Paris 2008 (with Tryptic - Humair/Celea/Couturier)
And finally, he can be heard with Roland Kirk here.

fixed marks
deleted most of the radio intro from beginning of #1,3,5,7
omitted separate fm talk tracks
added fades
merged four parts of "For David's Sake" (8:57, 0:19, 0:16, 4:15) - some transmission issues there!
added 1.5 seconds of silence at end of #3

Additional lineage: FLAC > WAV > Cool Edit Pro > FLAC (8,asb,verify)

Note on sequence:
The broadcast started live with the final 2:41 minutes of #3.
Then, in the break, #1, #2 and the first 7:37 of #3 were played.
Then, the next set was broadcast live again.

In the seed on dime, the second part of #3 was the first title, then followed #1, #2, the first part of #3, and then Set 2.
