Yas-Kaz Does Jazz

Yas-Kaz - Virgo Indigo

Yas-Kaz is a Japanese percussionist. His works are often filed under ambient, experimental, new age and classical. This record released in 1986 is more in the jazz vein. There are tracks on this record that would fit the experimental tag, and a couple could be heard as leaning towards the cosmic side of sounds. Weather Reporter, Wayne Shorter is featured on soprano sax on the title track. Sounds of flute, violin, guitar, guitar synthesizer, keyboards, and off course, lots of percussion fill out the mix.

wtf five

that day I found it I put the B-Side on first, sat down and listened to the free jazz for a minute or two. Then turned it around and sat there for ten minutes, got up, lifted my arm went back and sat there for ten minutes, got up, lifted my arm went back and sat there for ten minutes, got up, lifted my arm went back and sat there for ten minutes, got up, lifted my arm went back and sat there for ten minutes, .....

Sassy J - Kaleidoscopes Vol. 3 - SUN

I'm happy to announce that we have a deep and soulful mix by switzerland's First Lady on the decks - DJ Sassy J. It's the third part of her Kaleidoscopes series and just as beautiful as the first two. When Sassy Judith isn't designing awesome and one of a kind clothing she cares for running the Patchwork clubnight in Bern where she hosts the who's who in Deep House, Hip Hop, Disco & Jazz. Check out her website there but first listen HERE

Judy's first

Judy and her band have some amazing records out there. This one here is their first and my favourite. Starts with the amazing Never Was Love and more of those lovely tunes follow. The whole album has a sound similar to Lonnie Liston Smith and The Cosmic Echoes' mid seventies LPs - unfortunately these didn't have Judy Robert's lovely voice...

Fire of Dreams

Lauri Paisley - The Fire of Dreams

Another private release, this time on Methylunna Music. Lauri Paisley was a solo artist and as far as I can find, this is her only release. Lauri plays grand piano, 12-String guitar, electronic percussion, and "massive quantities of synthesizers". Some of the tracks have a classical feel while others, particularly on the b side, border on synthpop, The album was released in 1987.
