This is a wonderful album. The music is just great.

Poking around the Internet I unearthed the following info:

Japan Victor LP SMJX-10071

Personnel: Hideo Ichikawa(piano), Hiroshi Matsumoto(vibes), Kunimitsu Inaba(bass), Motohiko Hino(drums). Additional personnel are uncredited.

Wish I knew more about them, but that was all I could find.

Thanks for introducing me to such fine music I would never hear if it were not for your blog. If possible, could you post Lloyd McNeill's "Elegia" sometime in the future?

Nick said...

Is it me or does the first track sound similar to Miles Davis's "So What"?

Regardless, its an amazing record! Thanks for posting!
