Shun (Japanese paper sleeve edition)

CD (Item 603786) Clinck (Japan), 1977 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.50 38

Great vocals from Japanese singer Shun Sakai – a swinging late 70s session, and one done with a great sort of acoustic energy! There's less of the fusion touches you might expect for such a date from the time – and Sakai keeps things in a nicely old school mode, while just reaching for some occasional warmer touches at times. The combo is great, and features some smoking work on tenor and flute from the legendary Akira Miyazawa – on titles that include "Just You Just Me", "Day By Day", "Teach Me Tonight", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Just In Time", and "Someone To Watch Over Me".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Warm jazz vocals, and some great instrumentation too – thanks to work from the sublime 70s bassist Isao Suzuki! Singer Noriko Miyamoto's on the cover, but the album's got the same great glow as Isao's other albums of the decade – a really refreshing approach to jazz arrangements, with ... CD

A pair of the wonderful albums from Nancy Wilson – Kaleidoscope and I Know I Love Him – from an early 70s period when Nancy was experimenting with a style that was a lot more sophisticated than that on some of her earlier pop hits! First is Kaleidoscope – a record that sounds a ... CD

Atlantic (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A unique moment from the legendary Jimmy Scott – a one-off album cut for Atlantic Records – recorded after his initial 50s fame, and decades before he'd finally get his due, much later in his life! The album's got a style that's a bit more mature than Scott's initial sides – a ... CD
Coral/Universal (Japan), 1965. New Copy
Excellent work from singer Maureen Tomson – a vocalist who originally hails from Scotland, and who sings here with the well-articulated style of some of the best British singers of the 60s! The album's definitely an old school vocal affair, but Maureen brings a nice sort of punch to the ... CD
Stone (Italy), 1970s. New Copy

Coming Right At You
Soul Brother (UK), 1974. New Copy
One of the rarest soul records of the 70s – recorded in Germany by a bunch of American servicemen on leave, but with a sound that's right out of the Chicago or Detroit groove of the pre-disco years! The group's great with both the funky and soulful material – hitting hard with monster ... CD
