Profile Information

Where are you located?
Taos, NM
What is your affiliation to the Jazz World?
Musical Artist, Educator, Composer
Tell us a little about your background...
Gary Yamane is a composer and performer living in Taos, New Mexico, whose interest in music spans all genres. Instruments include saxophone, flute, Native American flutes, keyboards, guitar, bass, percussion.

Originally from Oakland, California, Gary Yamane has been a student of the creative process for 46+ years, ever since he picked up the saxophone at age 8. He has studied music extensively with teachers such as Rudy Tapiro, Gary Gray, John Handy, and Joe Viola. He has attended the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Berklee College of Music, Boston, and San Francisco State University where he graduated with a B.A. degree in Creative Arts. He has performed throughout the San Francisco Bay Area as well as the east coast and southwest. His music, though structured and deeply harmonic, is highly improvisational and spontaneous in nature. When describing his music, he said, "I am really a be-bopper with large ears". Not satisfied with the typical jazz genre, his music is as diverse as life itself and crosses many genres. "I take my inspiration from Nature and current social events", he said when asked what inspires his compositions. His compositions reflect his interest in and the influences of world music. "Access to the world has never been greater and I want to incorporate the sounds of the world into my music". Being curious about the nature of creativity has led him to study Zen, T'ai Chi, and hypnosis. "Music is a language of creativity and when we are in touch with our inner selves can we express the flow of our thoughts and feelings through music".

He has composed for multimedia projects by international high tech companies and local non-profit organizations. He has performed throughout the United States and has toured the Southwest playing Native American flutes for a theatre company. He currently teaches contemporary music at Moreno Valley Charter High School and performs locally.
