Ryo FukuiLetter From Slow Boat (Japanese pressing) ... LP
HMV (Japan), 2015. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99
Beautiful work from pianist Ryo Fukui – a relatively recent set, but one that sparkles with all the charm and imagination of his famous records from years back! The format is a familiar trio – with Takumi Awaya on bass and Itetsu Takemura on drums – but as always with Fukui, the result is something that's far different than standard jazz piano – as his sense of rhythm, timing, and lyrical flow really keeps things moving in very surprising ways – even when the performance features familiar songs! The recording quality is fantastic, and really lives up to Ryo's boundless energy on the keys – and the whole thing is a great contemporary extension of that rich tradition in new piano expression that Japan first started during the 70s. Titles include "Soultrane", "Old Country", "Sonora", "Stella By Starlight", "Be My Love", and "Chasin The Bird". LP, Vinyl record album

Ryo FukuiMy Favorite Tune ... LP
Slow Boat/HMV (Japan), 1994. New Copy (reissue)... $46.99
A lost chapter in the career of Japanese pianist Ryo Fukui – a beautiful solo set recorded quite a few years after his famous early classics – but a set that shows Fukui still every bit as full of imagination as before! There's no bass or drums on the set, but many tunes have Ryo taking off with an inherent sense of rhythm that's really wonderful – lyrical leaps on the keys of the piano that just keep charming us all over again – both on tunes of his own, and favorites by Sonny Clark and Barry Harris! The sound quality is wonderful – and really gets at that subtle attack that Fukui can bring to the piano – on titles that include "Voyage", "Scenery", "Mellow Dream", "Nobody's", "My Conception", and "Nord".

Ryo FukuiRyo Fukui In New York (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Sapporo/HMV (Japan), 1999. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99
A smoking trio set from Japanese pianist Ryo Fukui – recorded in New York with help from Lisle Atkinson on bass and Leroy Williams on drums! The date's a bit later than some of the classics from the golden age of Japanese piano trio recordings, but has a very similar vibe – and in addition to very deft, expressive work from Fukui – a player who's maybe got more bop elements here than in his early days – the group also really sparkles with the work of Atkinson, a player who's sometimes overlooked, but who always brings a subtle depth to his sessions. Titles include "All The Things You Are", "Embraceable You", "Hot House", "Red Carpet", "Bouncing With Bud", and a great remake of Fukui's earlier song "Mellow Dream". LP, Vinyl record album
