Release date:


When he returned to Japan he went straight into the studio and cut this Blue Note inspired Japanese jazz masterpiece. With a selection of tunes ranging from the 1940's stylings of "Tico Tico" through to the samba infused "Orfeo Negro" and arriving in Silversville with "Sayonara Blues" Hideo Shiraki has hit all the sweet spots!

With sleeve notes translated into English for the first time and laid out in the Blue Note style this release is going to be seen as a landmark re-issue.
