    Who is this "Lyuichi Sakamoto" that is in the credits?

      An important jazz fusion album that blends several styles. Not just a Kazumi Watanabe album but an album featuring several important Japanese jazz fusion musicians, including YMO's Ryuichi Sakamoto, and keyboardist and vocalist Akiko Yano. Side A includes a cover of Miles Davis' 'Milestones' that takes the song to new heights.

        Side A produced by Kazumi Watanabe will be developed with an orthodox fusion and crossover.
        New Electronic Fusion and various experiments appear in Side B produced by Ryuichi Sakamoto.
        A representative of Japanese fusion album.
