Ryo FukuiLetter From Slow Boat ... CD
Sapporo/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99
Beautiful work from pianist Ryo Fukui – a relatively recent set, but one that sparkles with all the charm and imagination of his famous records from years back! The format is a familiar trio – with Takumi Awaya on bass and Itetsu Takemura on drums – but as always with Fukui, the result is something that's far different than standard jazz piano – as his sense of rhythm, timing, and lyrical flow really keeps things moving in very surprising ways – even when the performance features familiar songs! The recording quality is fantastic, and really lives up to Ryo's boundless energy on the keys – and the whole thing is a great contemporary extension of that rich tradition in new piano expression that Japan first started during the 70s. Titles include "Soultrane", "Old Country", "Sonora", "Stella By Starlight", "Be My Love", and "Chasin The Bird". CD
Also available Letter From Slow Boat (180 gram pressing) ... LP 34.99

✨✧ Ryo FukuiRyo Fukui In New York ... CD
Sapporo/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1999. New Copy ... $15.99
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". CD

Motohiko Hamase#Notes of Forestry ... CD
Wacoal Art Center/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1988. New Copy ... $15.99
A masterpiece from Japanese minimalist Motohiko Hamase – a record that maybe has a bit more musical variety than some of his other works of the 80s – with four different longer pieces that each have a different flavor, and a wonderfully poetic vibe overall! Two of the pieces are heavier on acoustic piano, and two are a bit more electronic – and together, they paint this amazing tuneful picture in sound – little melodies that kind of spring forth with a natural, organic quality, then unfold like little musical flowers over a longer space in time. Think of the quality as maybe a bit like Penguin Cafe, but set to more extended numbers – the pieces "Nude", "Spiral For Multiple Instruments", "Pascal", and "#Notes Of Forestry". CD

Motohiko HamaseAnecdote ... CD
Lung/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1987. New Copy ... $15.99
A rare live set from Japanese bassist Motohiko Hamase – recorded right during a stretch when he was really mixing up his modes – fusing older fusion elements with some of the more electronic experiments of his studio records of the period – all in a way that must have made for quite a compelling set to see live! Hamase plays a fair bit of fretless bass – arcing and crafting these notes that are very much in the best jazz fusion school of the time – but they're mixed with keyboards, electronics, acoustic piano and percussion from two bandmates – all of which creates this unique soundscape as the trio shifts through so many different elements at once. Titles include "Duplicated Scene", "Pascal Variant", "Plateau", "Reminiscence", "Elan Vital", "Circlet", "Symptom", "Intermezzo", and "Aborigine". CD

Motohiko HamaseTechnodrome ... CD
Wacoal Art Center/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1993. New Copy ... $15.99
One of the more electric albums from Motohiko Hamase – a Japanese artist that we first knew for his jazz recordings, but who really has branched out by the time of this release! There's still plenty of bass in the music – but the instrument is used in fuller, more powerful waves of sound – with all these shades, tones, and textures – elements that might have been used in more subtle ways on an 80s Japanese minimalist recording, but which here take off in directions that have more of that Bill Laswell brooding sense of darkness from the early 90s. Given that aspect, there's maybe a lineage here that also is influenced by electric Miles – but with no trumpet in the mix, the sound is more along the lines described – with titles that include "Chirico", "End Of Legal Fiction", "Invisible City", "Opaque", and "Imagery".

Yutaka HiroseNova + 4 (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Misawa Home/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
Spare soundscapes from Japanese keyboardist Yutaka Hirose – mostly composed on a variety of electronic instruments, but with a vibe that's very natural and organic overall! The music is very slow-moving, and unfolds at a quiet pace – all definitely in the tradition of the best Ambient Music projects from Brian Eno – but maybe even taking things a bit further, with a gentle sense of construction and abstraction – all blended with occasional sound effects pulled from nature, which furthers that organic quality in the music. Titles include "Taiko", "Humming The Sea", "Through The Windows", "Nova", and "Slow Sky". This edition also features four long unreleased tracks, recorded at the same time – "Old Dream Spell", "Light Which Shakes Quietly", "One Day In Summer", and "Shadow Of A Water Droplet".

Gareth Quinn RedmondLaistigh Den Ghleo ... LP
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 2018. New Copy ... $16.99
A contemporary record, but one that's dedicated to the older musical creations of Satoshi Ashikawa – and which has a similar mix of minimal and environmental modes! The sounds here are beautiful – like little instrumental flowers that open up slowly and tunefully – much more compelling than watered-down ambient or new age modes, and with an organic energy that's intertwined between acoustic and electric sources, so that a piano will ring out one moment, a wave of sound will flow the next – and the production style does a superb job of keeping everything in just the right space. Titles include "An Gleo", "Laistigh Den Ghleo", "Athru", "Luaineach", and "An Gairdin Uirbeach". LP, Vinyl record album
