Ryo Kawasaki Selected Works 1979 to 1983

 

Via NuNorthern Soul:

Liverpool-based label NuNorthern Soul have dug through Ryo Kawasaki‘s  extensive catalogue to bring us a section of what they consider are his finest works. His boundary-pushing catalogue of music, the exemplary musicians he has recorded with and his standing as one of the finest guitarists operating in jazz rock are however not the only remarkable things about Ryo Kawasaki’s life and legacy. A writer, arranger, musician, producer, electronics and software innovator, this well travelled, amateur astronomer has lead and continues to lead an extraordinary existence. The release contains extensive sleeve notes by Marc Rowlands. Take a small journey through the amazing repertoire of Ryo with the 5 tracks that take in sublime jazz through to out there electronic vibes. Hugely recommend.
