Rinsyoe Kida with Akira Ishikawa & His Count BuffalosTsugaru Jongara Bushi Drum & Tusgaru Jamisen ... LP
Teichiku/Cinedelic (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 39.99
Shamisen never sounded so groovy before – thanks to excellent work from Akira Ishikawa & His Count Buffalos – who are working here at their funky 70s best! The album mixes great sounds from Count Buffalos with the solo talents of Rinsoye Kida on shamisen – the traditional Japanese three-stringed instrument that's usually used in much more conservative settings – but which is recorded here in a style that's right up front in the mix, and able to step out nicely in front of the fuller, groovier backings from Ishikawa and his group! Given the nature of the instrument, the style is quite different than some other jazz albums from the time that try to mix with Japanese folkloric styles – maybe a bit like Dorothy Ashby on the koto, but more striking overall. Notes and titles are all in Japanese – and the whole thing's pretty darn compelling! LP, Vinyl record album

Takayanagi Masayuki & New DirectionsIndependence – Tread On Sure Ground ... LP
Teichiku/Cinedelic (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
A fantastically free session from the Japanese scene of the late 60s – a set that really points the way towards some of the more dramatic, dynamic guitar-based expression to come in later decades! The group's a trio, with guitarist Takayanagi Masayuki very firmly in the lead – playing his instrument in a range of compelling ways – bowing the strings one minute, plucking with Derek Bailey-like complexity the next – sometimes with heavy drums and bass, other times standing out in very free solo space. The whole album's got a very freely improvised feel, and stands as an early link between free jazz and experimental rock modes - with tracks that include "Piranha", "Herdsman's Pipe Of Spain", "The Galactic System", "Sick Sick Sickness My Aunt", and "Study No 3 Up & Down".

✨✧ Yoshiko SaiMikkou ... LP
Teichiku/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $39.99
A record with a really trippy cover – and a sound within that mixes elements of that image with a surprisingly sweet and soulful sound! Vocals are in Japanese throughout, and while there's some current of groove to the record, Yoshiko Sai works in a mode that's very different than the smoother styles of the city pop generation – with vocals that are more pronounced over the instrumentation – which flows with this beautiful blend of acoustic and electric elements, encompassing some nice touches from vibes, sitar, and tablas next to more familiar acoustic guitar. There's a really timeless feel to the record – almost a bridging of older Japanese female vocal styles with psychedelic inspiration – hard to describe in words, but really beautiful on vinyl! LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful Japanese pressing – with obi and insert!)

✨✧ Chisato Yamada/Takeshi TerauchiSuite Nihonkai ... LP
Teichiku/Cinedelic (Italy), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A totally cool little record from Japan – one that mixes old school acoustic instrumentation on shamisen with these larger arrangements that have a much more contemporary vibe – partly 70s funk, partly soundtrack in scope, and a very cool backdrop for the spare sound of the unique three-stringed instrument! Chisato Yamada plays with plenty of feeling here – often doing a heck of a lot with just a little – as the larger charts from Takeshi Terauchi swell and groove, almost as if the whole thing were some groovy film score from the time! All song titles are in Japanese – and the set features the long "Sea Of Japan" suite, plus a few shorter tracks too. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition!)
