MITSUAKI KATAYAMA - FIRST FLIGHT



























Mitsuaki Katayama for Johnny's Disc Japan from 1979.
Mitsuaki Katayama - Drums ; Kishio Kitahara - Bass ; Kichiro Sugino - Piano.

Time to wrap up 2014 with this top notch session from the wonderful Johnny's Disc of Japan.
Five tunes topped and tailed by the fiery samba "Unknown Point" and the muscular percussion driven "First Flight" both penned by Katayama .Sandwiched between a lovely filling of three originals by Sugino & Kitaharo.
The finest in Japanese Jazz....

Happy New Year!!!
