✨✧ Isoo FukuiSunrise Sunset ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mindblowing sounds from Japanese bassist Isoo Fukui – one of a handful of 70s players on that scene who really helped reinvent the sound of his instrument in jazz! Isoo really drives the group here up from the bottom – by playing both bass and cello with these well-inflected notes that are heavy on soul and rhythm, and which often enforce a modal sensibility that's carried out perfectly by the vibes of Kazuhiro Matsuishi and piano of Hideo Ichikawa! A few numbers feature guitar from Shoji Yokouchi, who plays with this chromatic style that really works well with the vibes – and titles include "Lady T", "Happy Walk", "7th Avenue Sunrise", "Early Summer", and "7th Avenue Sunset".

Hideo Ichikawa TrioTomorrow ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $19.99 24.00
Hideo Ichikawa may have been one of the most inventive pianists to record for the Three Blind Mice label in the 70s – an artist whose talents are expansive both on the acoustic and electric versions of the instrument he uses here – and which also extend to a few contributions on percussion and recorder as well! The tracks are all nice and long – in the best TBM way – and Ichikawa has a way of playing freely, but never in a free jazz mode – always sliding to the right lyrical moments when things get a bit too sharp-edged, but never in a way that's undercutting his sound. The Fender Rhodes is especially nice – played with round, warm notes – and the rest of the group features Isoo Fukui on bass and cello, and Hideo Yamaki on drums and bells. Titles include "Between The Lights", "Tomorrow", "234 Out Of The Boundless Verdant Land", and "Birds My Birds". CD

Masaru ImadaPoppy ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $19.99 24.00
Really lovely piano work from Masaru Imada – a player who's a bit gentler than some of his Japanese contemporaries of the early 70s, but who also works with this wonderfully lyrical tone! Imada does a great job of balancing a sense of flow with a punctuated approach to the keys – never overdone, and often with this spacious sensibility – but more pointed than a Bill Evans style as well. The first half of the album is solo material, and the second features a trio – bass is by Isoo Fukui and drums are by Mashiko Ozu – both players who step into Imada's world in a way that's subtle, but extremely effective. Titles include "Poppy", "Sea Weeds", "Ascent", "Left Alone", and "When Sunny Gets Blue". CD

✨✧ Tsuyoshi Yamamoto TrioMisty ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1974. Used ... $38.99
Not "Misty" in an Errol Garner sense – although Tsuyoshi Yamamoto serves up his own version of the tune here – and instead a hip set from the Three Blind Mice scene of the 70s, with a very open, freewheeling approach to piano trio work! Yamamoto's a bit straighter than some of his contemporaries on the label, but still finds a way to really open things up with a fresh approach – a style that's strongly helped by the round, warm bass tones of Isoo Fukui – who's a great counterpoint to the jaggedly brilliant solo work from Yamamoto himself. Tetsujiro Obara plays drums, and the album's a masterpiece of space and understatement – with titles that include "Yesterdays", "Misty", "Blues", and "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes". CD
(Out of print blu-spec CD – with obi!)

Three Blind Mice (Japan), 1974. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock

(Japanese 70s pressing, with insert – TBM 2530. Cover has some light wear around the edges, but this is a nice copy overall.)

✨✧ Masaru ImadaOne For Duke ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The album's dedicated to Duke Ellington, and it features Duke Ellington tunes – but overall the set is a very personal moment from pianist Masaru Imada – maybe one of his strongest dates of the 70s! The music opens up with that beautifully creative Japanese piano trio approach of the 70s – lots of new ideas and new styles brimming forth throughout, but always in a way that's respectful of tradition while pushing things forward – swinging back to familiar modes one minute, then soaring forth with a personal spirit the next. Masaru's trio-mates here are a great match – the excellent Isoo Fukui on bass and Tetsujiro Obara on drums – on titles that include "Stevie", "Satin Doll", and "Sophisticated Lady" – plus the Imada originals "Blue Rain" and "One For Duke".
