This album was released in 1980 by The Trinity, a trio consisting of drummer/percussionist Masahiko Togashi, bassist Isao Suzuki, who also played together on the excellent 1979 album "a Day of the Sun", addition with pianist Hideo Ichikawa. With the introduction of vocoder, electric piano and the pre-synthesizer string ensemble Solina, the Trinity's music ranges from covers of standards to ethno-spiritual jazz reminiscent of the aforementioned "Sunlight". The whole album is excellent, but A1/B1 in particular is a must.A1: Alice in Wonderland
B1: The Treasure of Takla-makan
