This album was released in 1982 by the Sakata Orchestra, led by Akira Sakata, one of Japan's leading free jazz saxophonists. The album features Shigeharu Mukai, Kazuko Hashimoto, Shuichi Chino, Tamio Kawabata, Shuichi Murakami Ponta, Kiyohiko Semba and others. Produced by Pochi, who also produced Colored Music's first album. The album was recorded live at a concert held at the Berlin Philharmonie Hall as part of the Berlin Jazz Festival in Berlin, Germany in November 1981. This is a live recording. The band's performance is freaky and aggressive, with elements of Japanese traditional music, electronics and more, making for a very forward-thinking and emotional free music.A1: What time is it?
