originally released in 1977, this reissue is sourced from the original masters and bears witness to a journey into slightly mellower, more soulful, and sometimes more contemplative territories than its legendary precursor, ‘scenery’.

With his sophomore album, Ryo Fukui swings from melancholy to vibrant joy with ease, reminding us that jazz is best served with a pinch of blues, and displays an immensely rare combination of pure talent, unique personal approach and focused discipline. The man undeniably deserves a spot in the pantheon of all-time great jazz pianists. He sadly passed away in March 2016, leaving behind a legacy of works that all jazz lovers should explore.
