Vinyl, gatefold, 1/LP. Official Mr Bongo reissue. 

This Japanese jazz/breakbeat, folkloric mega-rarity was originally released on United Artists in 1970. The album uniquely combines traditional Japanese instrumentation with Western jazz influences.

Minoru Muraoka plays ‘shakuhachi’ – a traditional bamboo Japanese flute – joined by his band members accompanying him on the ‘koto’ (strings) and ‘tsutsumi’ (drum) amongst others, to create their ‘Shakuhachi Jazz’ sound.
