Album Notes
YAZBAND's latest Album "Horizon" includes YAZ’s original compositions, and Smooth Jazz arrangement of Michael Jackson’s “Rock With You”, Bobby Caldwell’s “What You Won’t Do For Love”, The Spinners’ “It’s A Shame”, and Straight ahead Jazz arrangement of Alicia Key’s “If I Ain’t Got You”, The Stylistics’ “People Make The World Go Round” and Jazz Standard “Stella By Starlight”.

Native of Osaka Japan, Yasuyuki ”YAZ” Takagi came to New York City in 1992 and formed his own band “Yaz Band” in 2002. Yaz Band is a four piece group which plays classic R&B songs written by artists such as Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind & Fire and Marvin Gaye as well as original instrumental tunes influenced by Grover Washington, Jr., Maceo Parker and The Crusaders. As an official member of Music Under New York, Yaz Band has performed at various New York City subway stations. His group has gained further exposure and recognition “above ground” as they have performed abroad in Seoul, Korea in both 2003 & 2004 and in cities well beyond the New York metropolitan area. Yaz has also performed as part of Lincoln Center's “Out of Doors” Festival, at the historic “Minton's Playhouse”, and at the legendary “Apollo Theater”. Additionally, audiences have had the pleasure to hear his energetic and soulful playing at many venues throughout the metropolitan area. Yaz's popularity has soared to the extent that he has also appeared on television in his native Japan and New York City's smooth jazz radio station WQCD, better known as to New Yorkers as “CD 101.9”.
