hey your site is such a god send.

I am looking for the recording at the Yokota airbase featuring Ryo Kawasaki and U Sakai . Do you know if that is around? I've heard 'Minor Kimuchi' from it and it's amazing. I'd really appreciate your help tracking it down.

Also I like the Kosuke Mine Quintet on the TBM label. Have you heard 'Morning Tide'?
