✨✧ VariousDays Of Delight – Dynamic (Yakudo) ... CD
Days Of Delight/Universal (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Soaring, searing spiritual jazz from the Japanese scene of the 70s – most of it pulled from the catalog of the East Wind label, an imprint that was really letting some of the younger musicians open up and do their thing! Japanese jazz had come very far forward in the 60s – but during the 70s, there was an even greater wave of exploration – partly from the older musicians, who were really starting to break past straighter American modes, but also from younger players who were initially inspired by the spiritual styles of John Coltrane and his group, then fused that energy with their own organic explorations – with results that you'll hear here in the best of their formation! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Minors Only" by Takehiro Honda, "Recollection" by Kosuke Mine, "In The Darkness" by Terumasa Hino, "Vichakani" by Sadao Watanabi, and one more long track with a Japanese title by Masabumi Kikuchi, pulled from his End For The Beginning album.

✨✧ VariousDays Of Delight – Resonance (Kyoshin) ... CD
Days Of Delight/Sony (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really special slice of Japanese jazz from the 70s – tracks from the sorts of records that make that scene so different than any others we can think of – especially in the way the musicians evolved familiar styles into personal grooves of their own! Instrumentation varies with each track, and often includes a fusing of acoustic elements with a few slight electric touches – almost never in familiar fusion ways, but instead with this organic energy that's really wonderful – and which gives almost all of these tunes a really special sort of glow! The quality of the music is a bit hard to sum up in words, but the package provides a perfect introduction to the range of great Japanese jazz albums issued by Columbia in the 70s – with titles that include "Shrimp Dance" by Hiroshi Suzuki, "On The Horizon" by Kazumi Watanabe, "Love More Train" by Terumasa Hino, "Breeze" by Hiromasa Suzuki, "Up Into The Sky" by Fumio Itabashi, "Babylonia Wind" by Kiyoshi Sugimoto, and "For My Little Bird" by Shigeru Mukai.

✨✧ VariousEnja Label Collection Vol 2 – Modern Jazz From Japan ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
An important part of the long legacy of Enja Records – a label that was based in Germany, but also offered key opportunities for expression to Japanese musicians over the years – especially during the 70s, when Enja released represented some of the few times these musicians were heard outside their local scene! Enja also maybe took even more chances with some of its Japanese artists than its American and European ones – allowing for some more outside, avant recordings – of which you'll find plenty here – mixed with a few straighter numbers as well. The package includes some moments when Japanese soloists join the groups of others, and lots more work by the musicians as leaders – and titles include "Night In Tunisia" by Yosuke Yamashita, "Alone Alone Alone" by Terumasa Hino, "Comme La Radio" by Akira Sakata, "Trinity" by Masahiko Sato, "Children Of The Night" by Bob Degen with Terumasa Hino, "Humpty Dumpty" by Akio Sasajima, "From Now On" by Karl Berger with Masahiko Sato, "Scarborough Fair" by Yosuke Yamashita and Hozan Hamamoto, "Ask Me Now" by Aki Takase and David Murray, and "Goodbye Porkpie Hat" by Aki Takase.

✨✧ VariousJ Jazz – Deep Modern Jazz From Japan 1969 to 1984 (3LP set) ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Mindblowing jazz from Japan – a tremendous introduction to the 70s scene in Tokyo if you've never heard this music at all – and a package that also includes a fair bit of rare tracks, even if you're not a newcomer! The Japanese love of American jazz is no secret – and the music was spread widely there by American forces after WWII – but during the 70s, something really special happened, and the scene found a voice that was all its own – exploding with new energy to create sounds that were soulful, spiritual, and powerfully poetic! By the end of the 70s, Japanese fusion would get more global exposure – but most of the tracks here are acoustic, save for Fender Rhodes lines – and feature completely inventive, imaginative sounds – often set to grooves that are modal and spiritual too. A fantastic collection throughout – with tracks that include "Blind Man" by Shintaro Quintet, "White Fire" by Takao Uematsu, "Aya's Samba" by Eiji Nakayama, "Earth Mother" by Koichi Matsukaze, "Dead Letter" by Tohru Aizawa, "Kaze" by Takeo Moriyama, "Long Neal" by Kiyoshi Sugimoto, "Unknown Point" by Mitsuaki Katayama, and "Little Island" by Fumio Karashima. 3LP set features bonus tracks – "Sea Breeze" by George Otsuka and "Ode To Workman" by Terumasa Hino and Reggie Workman.
