Shigeko ToyaShigeko Toya With The Imada Masaru Trio ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
An unusual little session from early 70s Japan – one that features some jazz vocals from Shigeko Toya, but also a fair bit of piano as well – set alongside backing from the trio of Masaru Imada, who plays organ on the numbers that don't feature Toya on the piano! If that sounds ... (Vocalists) read more CD

Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A split session of material – both sides recorded during the same concert in Yokohama, but with one side of instrumental work, and one side of vocals!

✨✧ Sunao WadaBlues Blues Blues ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record with "blues" in the title, but a set that's pure jazz all the way through – and very much in the best spirit of the Three Blind Mice label in the 70s! Guitarist Sunao Wada is working here with a really wonderful group – Masaru Imada on piano and organ, Isao Suzuki on ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Sunao WadaBlues World ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from Japanese guitarist Sunao Wada – a player who's rich in tones and colors here, and not just the blue ones mentioned in the title! There's an open flow to the record that's really wonderful – maybe the maturity of the Wes Montgomery sound of the late 60s, but set up ... (Jazz) read more CD

Tsuyoshi YamamotoLive In Montreux ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $19.99
A smoking live set from pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto – working here not in a small Tokyo club, but on the stage of the Montreux Jazz Festival – where he's clearly drawing inspiration from the global lineup to blow away most of the competition!

Tsuyoshi YamamotoMidnight Sugar ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $19.99
The midnight sugar here comes from pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto – who's playing with a soulful, bluesy sort of style – one that reminds us a bit of Ray Bryant back in the 60s, but which also comes across here with a fair bit of lighter, lyrical touches as well! As with other Three Blind ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Tsuyoshi YamamotoMidnight Sun ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most sensitively soulful records of the 70s from pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto – a set that still has him working in a trio format, but which also has a slightly more mellow feel overall – with some especially great work from the leader on the ballads! Yamamoto's style is ... (Jazz) read more CD

Tsuyoshi YamamotoSummertime ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $19.99 24.00
Great work from one of the most dynamic Japanese pianists of the 70s – a player who's straighter than some of his contemporaries, but also has a very soulful swing as well! Tsuyoshi Yamamoto really opens up in a live setting – and concert dates like this represent some of his best work ... (Jazz) read more CD

Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of live performances – both of them great, and both done in the very open, creative style of the Three Blind Mice label at the time! Side one features core work by the trio of pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto, but with key guest work from Isao Suzuki on cello and Sunao Wada on guitar – ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Shoji YokouchiBlonde On The Rocks ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great title, and a great little album to match – one that features two guitars, plus bass and drums – in an open-ended style that's mighty nice on the ears! The set's got a lean kind of sound – as you might expect from the lineup – and Japanese players Shoji Yokouchi and ... (Jazz) read more CD

Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $19.99 24.00
A jazz guitar/Hammond organ session – the former by Shoji Yokouchi, the latter by Yuri Tashiro – but a variation on the form that's quite different than usual, and very much in the groundbreaking style of the Three Blind Mice label! Shoji plays a few different guitars – both ... (Jazz) read more CD
