Days of YesterdayBuy Now

Elegant, charismatic vocalist Hiromi Kanda pays tribute to the timeless American classics in Days of Yesterday, her sophomore album. Nagasaki-born Kanda says, “I have always loved America’s great standards and the old movie musicals. I feel that the music of this genre in America—the classics written by Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Gus Kahn— may be the most musical and romantic ever written. Also, the big band sound makes it so big!” In order to achieve that “bigness,” Kanda came to Hollywood, where she recorded Days of Yesterday at the legendary Capitol Studios with a full 50-piece orchestra. Working with Hiromi on the album were the multiple Grammy-winning producer/engineer Al Schmitt and arranger Matt Catingub, a multi-instrumentalist, conductor and composer. The album also spotlights Joe Sample on piano.

“What an unexpected treat to work with Hiromi, whom I never worked with before. She has a wonderful voice and has love and respect for that classic era of music. She’s a great talent.” - Al Schmitt

“Blessed with a solid voice and an impressive sense of time, Hiromi sings in a style that suggests the smokiness of Marlene Dietrich crossed with the lilt of Astrud Gilberto.” - JazzTimes Magazine
