Takeo Moriyama - East Plants

by Takeo Moriyama


J Jazz Masterclass Series curated by Tony Higgins and Mike Peden for BBE Records. 2 x LP reissue (first time reissued on vinyl) in gatefold sleeve, with obi strip. Originally released in 1983 on the Japanese VAP label, ‘East Plants’ is an essential album in the J Jazz canon. It’s an album that distils several key characteristics of Moriyama’s music: clearly articulated and inventive rhythms, open yet orderly arrangements, and an accessible groove balanced with a graceful control.
