I purchased a copy of this album in 1994 after hearing 'Love Light' on the Robbie Vincent Saturday show in 1981, and had to search for it for nearly 13 years and I was not dissapointed. It has to be one of the best albums I have ever heard, we even danced on our wedding night to 'Love Light' The album features many renowned artists amongst them Dave Grusin. I will never sell this album and when I go I want a copy of it buried with me. If you like Japanese Jazz from this period of the likes of Sadao Watanabe, Hiroshi Fukumura then this is definately for you.
