Isao Suzuki, the international star bassist who gave us Blow Up! and Blue City is joined by another star player of the TBM label, the soulful pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto.
A great album. This was released on the Japanese Three Blind Mice label. This one has actually been reissued recently, but I imagine that in some parts of the world it might be tough to to find as anything but an expensive import. However, if you really like it I urge you to buy it. The session features Isao Suzuki on bass and cello, Donald Bailey on drums and Tsuyoshi Yamamoto on rhodes and piano. The sound is mostly jazzy with a hint of funkiness on Manha De Carnaval, which is also my favorite track on the album (the rhodes sound especially lovely on that one).
