VariousPenguin Cafe (180 gram pressing) (Japanese Record Day release) ... LP
HMV/333 Discs (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... $44.99
A really beautiful tribute to the Penguin Cafe Orchestra – that famous UK instrumental ensemble first started by Simon Jeffes in the late 70s! The group faded from most of the global eye at some point in the 80s, but continued to hold sway for Japanese audiences for many years more – which makes this Japanese tribute to the group such a great effort – a wonderful giving-back by artists who've been strongly influenced by the unique instrumental vision of Jeffes over the years. Most of the artists here are listed in Japanese – although the set does include one track by Steve Jansen, and others by Haas, Moose Hill, and the Other Four – versions of "Penguin Cafe Single", "Paul's Dance", "Pythagoras' Trousers", "Air A Danser", "Telephone & Rubber Band", "Isle Of View", "Music For A Found Harmonium", and "Perpetuum Mobile".

✨✧ Ryo FukuiRyo Fukui In New York ... LP
Sapporo/HMV (Japan), 1999. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

40 Watt BananaPeeled ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $25.99
A very cool group that's every bit as groovy as their look on the cover – and who make a sound that's way better than you'd expect from a bunch of New Zealanders holding instruments from Indian music! The core of the group is Kevin Clark and Dave Parsons – who play together here on piano, trumpet, electronics, sitar, sarod, tabla, and other percussion instruments – often overdubbed, and recorded in ways that use the studio as an additional instrument – tripping things out with echo and effects, and finding space for a few other musical guests. One track here has vocals – "Nirvana", which was the only cut here ever released (issued as a single by HMV/EMI) – and all other tracks are instrumental, with a vibe that's maybe somewhere in the territory of some of the Don Cherry world jazz experiments recorded on the Scandinavian scene. Titles include "Nirvana", "Duddle Dup", "Haryana", "Kharmatic Prelude", "Amanzi", "Namaqua", and "Kharmatic Conversations". LP, Vinyl record album

Ryojiro FurusawaRacco (Sea Otter) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Union/Teichiku (Japan), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $46.99
Deep deep sounds from this hip Japanese drummer – a set that features a fusion-styled mix of keyboards and sax, but one that comes across with a gentle feel that's light years from conventional fusion! The balance is perfect throughout – kind of a spacey, soulful vibe – stretching out beautifully, yet never getting overindulgent – no jamming modes at all, and really a great ear for the space between the notes that keeps the whole thing on a open-handed level. One track goes slightly out, but in a way that balances the others nicely – and players include Tomoki Takahasi on tenor and soprano sax and Toshiyuki Daitoku on keyboards. Titles include "June Rain", "Burning Cloud", "Moki", "Racco", and "Cum Cum". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mabumi YamaguchiLeeward (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Union/Teichiku (Japan), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Spare sounds, but beautifully woven together – all in service of these lovely long tracks that really highlight the soulful side of reedman Mabumi Yamaguchi! Each number here takes up half the side of a record – there's only four tracks in all – and Yamaguchi plays these slow-building, spiritually-searching solos on tenor and soprano sax – working with some great Fender Rhodes in the background on most numbers, plus bass and drums that build into the rhythms slowly – then get very full by the end of the record. The whole thing's wonderful – as powerful as it is poetic – and titles include "Dawn", "Dewdrop", "Distant Thunder", and "Leeward". LP, Vinyl record album
