Hiroshi Sato - Orient
Brand new. Sealed album.
Hiroshi Sato's ultra rare ambient funk masterpiece, originally released in 1979 in Japan on Kitty Records.
Digitally remastered from the original tapes, Orient features the cream of Japanese musicians including Shigeru Suzuki on guitar, Haruomi Hosono on bass, Pecker on Percussion and Sato himself on keyboards and synthesizers. This highly sought-after album on the Balearic scene, changing hands for high prices, is a superb breezy mix of Japanese synth-pop and exotica with subtle touches of mid 70s Herbie Hancock-style funk and AOR.
