23 years after 1st album's release, 2nd album of Golden Monkeys has arrived!.

Golden Monkeys is the World-Jazz-Exotica Music Creature that created by Yusuke Yamamoto.

I made a teaser for my new album “Golden Monkeys 2”, which is arriving very soon!!!

Golden Monkeys is my first band in New York, formed around 1996. Released the first album in 1999. So it took almost 23 years to complete the 2nd one. Some of the recording was actually from 2002~3 and was left in my hard drive. I always wanted to revisit these materials and finish up but I started some other projects and time just passed. When this pandemic started, I thought it’s a perfect time to complete these unfinished recordings. It took another 2 years to re-record, add those super talented guest musicians and mix and master.

Finally it’s here!!!

The album includes songs featuring Chirs Cheek (sax), Frank LoCrasto (piano), and Jeremy Wilms (guitar).

You can now purchase or stream at your favorite place.
