COMING SOON ON BBE : J Jazz - Deep Modern Jazz from Japan 1969 - 83.

I've been busy working with Tony "Impressed" Higgins putting together a new Japanese Jazz compilation which is being issued by BBE Records in a few months time - J Jazz: deep modern jazz from Japan 1969 - 1983. A collection of some of the finest, rarest and most sought-after modern jazz that saw artists developing new sounds and styles that redefined Japanese jazz. Focusing on prize cuts drawn from private pressings and independent labels, J Jazz will give the listener an insight into a creatively dynamic scene that embraced deep modal, spiritual and impressionistic jazz.
Here's a taster of what's to come with a full force cut from the phenomenal private press rarity that is "Tachibana":
