There's a second volume of the BBE J-Jazz compilation coming in September - you're better off buying a physical copy than just getting it from Bandcamp, though, 'cause they only licensed I think 5 tracks for digital and the 2CD set has 15. I pre-ordered mine already.

This Hiroshi Suzuki album keeps coming up on my youtube recommendations - and according to this guy lots of other people's.

Few albums better illustrate the magic of YouTube as a music platform...

And it's pretty great, even more when I realised the fellow was playing the trobone.

There's one other album on discogs but seems to be very little else.

I haven't seen Cat on my recs list for a while since I stopped doing J music deep dives, however, I still get Plastic Love by Mariya Takeuchi all the time, it's up to 12m hits, insanity.

Listing to Japanese radio this afternoon and they were interviewing the leader of Soil and ‘Pimp’ sessions was jntroduing their new album recorded at roni Scott’s. He played ‘Space Drifter’ - well worth looking out for when it comes out on Tuesday.

Aspirations of Madness, Blank Forms' fifth collection of archival, unpublished, or newly translated texts, takes its title from a series of interviews with Japanese free jazz pioneer Masayuki Takayangi that were published in Japanese in 1975-76 and are published here in English for the first time. The interviews provide a rare look at Takayanagi's eccentric practice and personality, both long under-recognized by audiences outside (and often, inside) of Japan.

Bought an LP from 1982 by an outfit called Jazz that's named 'Live Jazz.' I got it on a hunch because it's on the Better Days label and features Yasuaki Shimizu and other members of Mariah. It's a little experimental and has some really bizarre spoken-word bits. As you can gather, the release is pretty unsearchable... just wondering if anyone has heard it or knows anything more?
