Japanese jazz pianist Masabumi Kikuchi released this masterpiece in 1981. Directly inspired by the electric period of Miles Davis, this album is one of the best, up there with Herbie Hancock's "Sextant". Though B2 is a true Miles's spirit, the sound is very different. According to the liner notes, he set up a live PA in the studio and edited the uncut takes, then overdubbed his own keyboards. I'm proud to say that there are Japanese artists who can do this well. The best of Japanese electric jazz funk. Sony's cutting sound is very good at that time.

A1: Circle / Line
B1: Gumbo
