Hiroshi Sato - Super Market (1976)


















Some readers may know the late Japanese pianist Hiroshi Sato from his excellent Awakening record with Wendy Matthews, or his work with folks like Haruomi Hosono and Tatsuro Yamashita (who, according the Japanese Wiki, called him Japan's greatest pianist). We have some other great, if more subdued albums of his however, starting with Super Market, his 1976 debut. There are some funky jams here, but nothing approaching the heights of the best Boogie or City Pop sounds that would appear in the next few years in Japan, in our opinion. What we're really digging are the Wilson-influenced, lightly fusion/"island sounds" rays caught from tracks like "レインボー・シーライン" and "Night in L.A.".

While it's difficult to find a detailed list of contributors without a physical copy, such notables as Shuichi "Ponta" Murakami, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Minako Yoshida, Kenji Omura, Yoshida Minako and
Kenji Takamizu appear on the record.
