COLUMBIA READY-MADE JAZZ ROCK

A few years ago Konishi Yasuharu pulled together a reissue series of 9 rare 70's Japanese jazz-rock albums from Columbia Japan to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Columbia.I posted the first of the series Count Buffalo's Soul & Rock here and following this was contacted by Bongohito,a reader of this blog,who kindly sent me rips of two more albums from the series.
I have ripped my copy of Keito Miho's Sachio:Sound Poesy to make a triple whammy of Japanese "Jazz Rock".Don't take the genre title too seriously and expect a lot more bossa/now sound than jazz rock on most of these tracks!
Thanks to chipple.net whose reviews I have plundered for these posts-read the rest of his musings on the series at his blog.

great salvo, I got sound poesy on vinyl, always struck me as a bit pedestrian & uninteresting. Don't have the other 2 - thanking u & Bongohito very much.
