Watanabe, Sadao - Pastoral

SKU 15-Sony SICP 4231
Saxist Sadao Watanabe is one of the better known Japanese jazz musicians in the USA, probably because he made a bunch of really lightweight fuzak albums.
However, the man can really play and this rare session, recorded in June 1969, is a fine, meaty, very early jazz/rock session, featuring:
Alto Saxophone, Sopranino Saxophone, Flute, Electric Piano – Sadao Watanabe
Bass – Yoshio Suzuki
Drums – Fumio Watanabe
Flugelhorn – Chiyoshige Matsubara, Masahiro Tanaka
Guitar – Yoshiaki Masuo
Piano, Electric Piano – Kazuo Yashiro
Vibraphone – Hiroshi Matsumoto

If you've enjoyed picking up all the other interesting late 60s and early 70s electric jazz from Japan that has come out in the last couple of years, this is another very good one that should be checked into!
