MIKIO MASUDA - MICKEY'S MOUTH
















Mikio Masuda for East Wind Japan from 1976.

MIKIO MASUDA: Fender Rhodes electric piano, Hohner D-6 Clavinet, Yamaha YC-30 organ, Mini Korg synthesizer, ARP String Ensemble MASAYOSHI SAITOH: guitar OSAMU KAWAKAMI: electric bass O JESS: drums GUILHERME FRANCO: congas, tablas, cuica, voice, percussion KOHSUKE MINE: soprano saxophone (4)

Keeping with the J Jazz theme here's another of my top 5 from Japan - Mikio Masuda's fantastic fusion tour de force "Mickey's Mouth".
All killer ....

GREAT !! I knew "I saw the Light" and now you give me the whole LP! THANKS Bacoso.

Mikio Masuda is here with Kohsuke Mine. But he also played in Terumasa Hino Quintet. Only pointures!

Next in line:Masabumi Kikuchi Reconfirmation LP (1970)

Man, I could not find it either on cd in japan, ebay, amazone, recordmania...or within the solidarity of the funky blogosphere!!

HELP is NEEDED here !!

The great Masabumi...

Thanks again
Gildas

Can't remember where I picked this one up, but all thanks to the original ripper/poster.

Thad said...

Also, please feel to re-post if you so desire, Bacoso! I've been following the blog for several years, and am always happy to give something back.

Gildas said...

Thad is Da man as we used to say !
You make my day!

TO all: check this LP; I heard it is a magnificience from track 1 till the end.

To Bacoso: thanks for bringing fusion jazz back and forth. You make this possible ! Thanks for that as well

It reminds me when my now good friend DavySan shared a live show from 1995 featuring Digable Planets and a funky band of players. It was back in 2002 but I still remember the magic of a rare gift
