        This is another great sounding release from the guys. Don't know how they do it but highly recommended. I have all of them and the first is probably my favorite but this one sounds great and another excellent selection of jazz tunes.

          My favorite Wamono compilation thus far. And that's saying a lot 'cos I love all the others.
          Great sound, great groove. Just love it.

              There's really no reason not to give this 5 stars. I tried to find something wrong with it... but I really couldn't. Stellar selection of tracks and it just sounds phenomenal.

                The sort of record that will lead to many of us self justifying their imminent hours of shopping for cart & styli upgrades.
                Toe tapping & chin stroking optional but to be expected.

                  Yet another grand-slam pressing from this series; and probably my favorite so far, musically. I'm instantly transported to a funky jazz club somewhere in Japan, in '76 of course... Hanging out with like-minded music fans, getting nice 'n' drunk on sake and such... The vibe is real, and strong. And the mastering is outstanding -- sounds like it was recorded last year. Incredible.

                  SO GOOD!!
