Japanese jazz mastermind, Isao Suzuki gets him and his quartet's 1975 album "Blue Road" reissued. Only initially released a month after making his stomper hit album "Orang-Utan", "Blue Road" is a comparatively lesser-known number recorded live in May of that year in the Nihon Toshi Center Hall in Tokyo. A star cast of bassists, clarinetists, electric pianists and vocalists join Suzuki for an emotive trip through both the new piece 'Blue Road' and the former 'Orang-Utan' in quick succession, making this a beauteous feature-length jazz masterclass, moving through both propulsive and serene sections. This is a Japanese import with obi strip, supervised by Takeshi Fujii, recorded & mixed by Yoshihiko Kannari.

Lovingly reissued by Days Of Delight, a label specialising in Japanese jazz and established in October 2018. The label's theme is to respect the sound of the 1970s — a time when Japanese jazz awakened with overwhelming originality and to spotlight the sound sources of that time. — (via Days Of Delight)
