"Earthwards" morphs intricate emotions into pure artistic energy.

Yuto Kanazawa's First Album "Earthwards"
was released from Interrobang Records
on February 13th, 2013.

"Yuto Kanazawa far more than the latest hotshot to come out of Berklee but instead allows him to lay legitimate claim as one of the more exciting new shooters in the world of modern jazz guitar " - Brent Black criticaljazz.com

"the record swings hard throughout, with the aggressive rhythm section frequently aiming friendly fire at Kanazawa's smooth guitar lines and elegant head arrangements".
- Jeremy D. Goodwin, The Boston Globe, February 11th, 2013
