Lucky Lady remains a startling and hugely entertaining piece of work that defies easy categorisation. While the focus point throughout remains Kawasaki’s dazzling, improvised guitar solos, it’s the music that sits beneath them that sounds so far-sighted. Almost entirely electronic, it takes cues from the hip-hop and dance scenes Kawasaki was surrounded by in New York, as well as the cold futurism of Kraftwerk, the other-worldly synth-pop of Japanese contemporaries Yellow Magic Orchestra, and – more surprisingly – the very specific shuffle of Jamaican dub reggae (the sunny synth-jazz of ‘Sophisticated Lady’). – On Bandcamp
