Kazumi Watanabe – Garuda feat. Kuniyuki

Kazumi Watanabe

Tokyo based label Jazzy Couscous celebrates its 10th release with a forgotten gem produced by Japanese jazz legend Kazumi Watanabe. The track entitled Garuda was originally released in 1984 on a private press dedicated to a famous Japanese wrestler, Antonio Inoki. The A-side features the original version, five minutes of ambient bliss that’s entirely immersive and dreamy. On the flip, Kuniyuki layers traditional drums, synth and pads adding new delights to the already stunning original.
