For an introduction to Kawasaki, this release is near perfect, taking in sublime jazz through heaving slabs of funk to out-there electronic vibes. Extra context is provided in the extensive sleeve notes from Marc Rowlands that pull from his 2015 interview with Kawasaki.


The five pieces of music you will hear on this selected works EP have been carefully chosen by NuNorthern Soul’s Phat Phil Cooper, culled from the long and highly varied recorded career of Ryo Kawasaki. His boundary pushing catalogue of music, the exemplary musicians he has recorded with and his standing as one of the finest guitarists operating in jazz rock are however not the only remarkable things about Ryo Kawasaki’s life and legacy. A writer, arranger, musician, producer, electronics and software innovator, this well travelled, amateur astronomer has lead and continues to lead an extraordinary existence.
