Shoji Yokouchi Trio + Yuri Tashiro - Greensleeves LP



Japanese guitar jazz from the 70s with a highly polished feel. If you like CTI stuff you'll be at home with this though this avoids a lot of the syrupy arrangements on some of the not so hot CTI albums. It's almost too pristine in a way, but repeated listens show this has soul too. I should also mention this reissue on Impex Records is one of the very best sounding records I've heard, ever - both in terms of how well the music was recorded and how devoid of surface noise and flaws the vinyl is.



^Very cool. So much stuff in Japan to check for this is certainly one of them.

Impex reissued some other Japanese jazz albums I would love to get, but they are very expensive 2xLP sets. They compiled three of them in this box set:
