Three Blind Mice Blu-spec CD reissue series! Limited paper sleeve edition!

George Kawaguchi (1927 - 2003) took after his father who was also a jazz musician and began playing drums after the war at clubs catering to American GIs. He formed a group called "The Big 4" in 1953 with Hidehiko "Sleepy" Matsumoto and became a national celebrity.

A true representative of hard bop, Kawaguchi reunites with "Sleepy" Matsumoto in this album (recorded in 1976) and, supported by a younger rhythm section, swings hard and plays brilliantly. This is definately Kawaguchi's best record and one of the best modern jazz albums by Japanese musicians. The crew of Three Blind Mice did a superb job of capturing the hot date with vivid sound, as they always did.

Produced by Takeshi Fujii. Recorded at Epicurus Studio in Tokyo on April 12 and 19, 1976. Blu-spec CD is compatible with all regular CD players. Paper sleeve special limited edition.
