MONSTER JAPANESE JAZZ-FUNK CLASSIC RECORDED IN 1970 BY ARRANGER NORIO MAEDA FOR TEICHIKU RECORDS AND WIDELY AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME WITH NEWLY REMASTERED AUDIO AND LINER NOTES BY PAUL BOWLER

Wewantsounds is delighted to announce the reissue of Norio Maeda’s cult classic “Rock Communication Yagibushi” released in Japan in 1970. The album has since become a Japanese Jazz Funk cornerstone and is now highly sought-after on the international DJ scene. The album reinterprets 14 traditional Japanese folk songs into jaw-dropping Jazz Funk instrumentals featuring killer arrangements by Maeda that would fit perfectly between David Axelrod and Lalo Schifrin. One of the most prolific Nippon arrangers, Norio Maeda on a par with Yuji Ohno and Kentaro Haneda and this album has long been on many collectors’ wantlist. “Rock Communication Yagibushi” is reissued internationally for the first time, with newly remastered audio, original gatefold artwork and new liner notes by Paul Bowler.
