Description:Brand-new DSD recording released on hybrid SACD!

Kazumi Watanabe (b. 1953) was a prodigy who released his debut album at age 17. He has been known for his astonishing technique, especially on electric guitar, and many genre-bending projects with sophisticated pop artists (the KYLYN BAND with Ryuichi Sakamoto and singer Akiko Yano) and his own fusion-oriented instrumental works (MOBO, etc.).

Watanabe celebrated his 40th year as a professional musician by recording a straight-ahead jazz album. His trusted trio includes two top jazz musicians -- Yosuke Inoue on bass and Hiroyuki Noritake on drums. The 11 tracks represent Watanabe's eclectic tastes and cover a wide range of the jazz spectrum, from bebop ("Route 65," "Four On Six") and standards to funk ("Meteor") to fusion ("El Dorado"). The program even includes a free improvisation with his long-time associate and drummer Hideo Yamaki ("Hot K"). Masahiro Fujioka and Masato Honda guests with their soprano saxophone on a few tunes.

Forty years after his debut, Watanabe shows has truly become one of the top jazz guitarists in the world. This is a wonderful jazz album with a fresh contemporary feel. The sound quality of this brand-new, DSD-recorded hybrid SACD is also superb. Highly recommended for fans of jazz guitar!

Recorded May 24-31, 2009 at Astro Studio and Sony Music Studios in Tokyo, Japan. DSD recording, mixing and mastering by Koji Suzuki (Sony Music Communications). This hybrid SACD is compatible with both SACD players and all regular CD players.
