Review: A long-time-coming reissue of a lesser known live funk album, showcasing the deft J-funk stylings of the genre's foremost legend Jiro Inagaki on the A - as well as lesser-spotted curios from fellow artists Taeko Morino, Eddy Clan and Akira Ishikawa on the B. Packed with futuristic synths and boasting a rather dry, untainted sound, we're most impressed by Morino's slow Anglophone ballad, which we'd describe as most haunting and mesmerising.

Review: Jazz collectors rejoice, as this incredibly rare and sought after 1975 release is finally getting its first western release. Previously a Japan-exclusive with soaring resale prices, now everyone can enjoy the bumping bass and clean brass of this Jazz-rock classic. The instrumentation is as crisp as they come from the very first note on 'Painted Paradise' with its head bumping saxophone solos. Inagaki's Soul Media crafted a soulful masterpiece at the height of Japan's obsession with American music in the 70s, with this record even including a cover of Kool & The Gang's 'Funky Stuff', turning the disco-jazz into a slow funk-filled jam. A much-needed repressing of a must-listen record.
