Boomkat Product Review:
Obscure 1988 album from Doctor Umezu Diva, the work of japanese sax player Kazutoki Umezu on a one off project in which he invited legendary marimba player Midori Takada and Jazz vocalist/pianist Ichiko Hashimoto for an album of collaborative improvisations.
"This album was one of the best kept, secret jazz albums from Japan; it's really hard-to-find and very limited. Dubby from Ondas Tokyo -- who compiled Midnight In Tokyo Vol. 2 brought this record to Studio Mule's attention. This album is a unique mixture of modern classical sound and avant-garde jazz, which is kind of similar with Strata East or Nimbus."
