Diane Hubka
I Like It Here / Live In Tokyo
Review By Ray Chowkwanyun

 

  You need this album. The music is great and the recording is absolutely phenomenal. How often do the planets align like that? The sound is hugely atmospheric and breathy. You can hear the flutter of the brushes on the cymbals. All the little details that lend that you are there quality to a recording. The recording engineer is Kiyoshi Tokiwa. Mastering by Ed Faris.

Diane Hubka's style is sophisticated longing and she plays the seven string guitar. My favorite track is the Jobim song Dindi.  So poignant, and so very bittersweet as all the best songs are. Man, I just love the Internet! I do not have to bend my brain trying to paint a word picture of this song. I can just point you to the video at Hubka's website and you can not only listen but see the performance. (Check out the other videos on this website including Give me the simple life which was omitted from the CD.)

The computer only hints at the sound quality on the CD if you listen to the samples online, but it is useful to give you an idea of the musical style. The album is available on the Hubka website and Amazon. The band behind Hubka is phenomenal in its own right. Kiyoshi Morita on piano, Masahiko Taniguchi on bass, and Nobuhiko Yamashita on drums.The perfect accompanists.
