SOLD – Toshiko Yonekawa 7′ – Saitaro Bushi (A to Z Edit) / Soran Bushi (2019)
Japanese National Treasure and koto player Toshiko Yonekawa with arranger Kiyoshi Yamaya released a few killer and super rare LPs in the mid-seventies. Both numbers on this seven inch are taken from “Tapestry Koto & the Occident Sea” from 1976. Both tracks are superb instrumental combinations of traditional min’you and jazz-funk grooves with impeccable sound and arrangements.
DJ Chintam (Wamono A to Z compilations) edits side A while the flip is unchanged. The sound is big and perfect for playing out. I forgot to say that both tracks were never released before on a single.
A tough one to find in and out of Japan, so I strongly recommend you get it ASAP!
