Super Rare 180g Japanese Import LP Mastered From The Original Tapes!

Unicorn was bassist Teruo Nakamura's first date as a leader. Recorded and issued in Japan on the legendary Three Blind Mice imprint in 1973, Nakamura had been working in New York since 1964. He'd done a lot of hardscrabble work before 1969 when he landed the gig as bassist in Roy Haynes' first group of the time. During that year he formed a band with Steve Grossman and Lenny White, who both appear here. This is an interesting date because it equally divided between very electric fusion tracks and more modal acoustic numbers. – Press Release
