This compilation documents an amazing period in japanese music, uncovering some of the most sought after & rare material from that time & illuminating key artists who shaped the post-war modern jazz scene in Japan.

In the years following World War Two, Japan developed one of the most insatiable, dynamic & diverse markets for jazz. from the late 1960s to the early 1980s, japanese jazz culture progressed at an astonishing rate, producing an extraordinary array of artists & record labels that created some of the most forward-thinking & impressive jazz to be committed to tape. the bass-driven power jazz of Koichi Matsukaze’s ‘Earth Mother’, the holy grail rarity of Aizawa Tohru Quartet’s ‘Dead Letter’ & the loping majesty of Takeo Moriyama’s ‘North Wind’ all await you. This collection takes the listener into deep spiritual jazz, post-modal impressionism & fierce dance-floor fusion with tracks that never saw an official release outside of japan until now.
