we are proud to announce the vinyl reissue of one of the best and most complex japanese jazz fusion albums, 1987°«s breeze by hiroyuki namba, eiji kawamura, and toshiro imaizumi°«s band atlas. hiroyuki namba is one of the most important japanese keyboardist of the °«80s with a legacy that in-cludes japanese cosmic classic °»who done it?°… and °»tropical explosion,°… a sought-after gem by diggers. in addition to his work with his progressive rock band sense of wonder, he°«s also known as a member of tatsuro yamashita°«s band. eiji kawamura is a highly respected arranger who has worked on projects by major recording artists like kyoko koizumi and hideaki tokunaga, and atlas°« third member toshiro imaizumi is a skilled studio musician who°«s also worked on major projects. the album opens with the soothing sounds of ocean waves that turn into the melancholic fusion num-ber that is °»mediterranean breeze,°… setting the balearic mood for the whole album. °»simpatia°… is an album highlight with a euphoric feel that could be tokyo°«s answer to the sounds of ibiza°Ĺan obscure japanese gem. °»after brunch with you°… is a sunny samba fusion with a playful, bright piano melody, followed by °»sum-mer breeze,°… an electric fusion jam that sound like holger czukay could have wrote it. a track that was so ahead of its time, i wouldn°«t be surprised if international feel picked it up and released it as is. breezy mellow tune °»never come into your eyes°… reminds you of the sentimental feeling one gets around the time summer°«s about to be over. another album highlight, °»indige,°… is one of japan°«s most unique dance tracks of the time, an electric disco stomper that sound like it could°«ve been produced by todd terje. °»breeze for siesta°» features toshiro imaizumi°«s beautiful piano paying, a relaxing song that wouldn°«t sound out of place on ecm. °»love beach°… blends prog influences with fusion in a way only hiroyuki namba can. the album ends with °»madrigl,°… a magical song with dramatic and melancholic moments, full of quintessentially japanese sense of beauty.
