More Info:

A new plan of master Muraoka. Novel groove feeling, emotional melody, and sharp sound image. An unprecedented, next-level new fusion. Takeru Muraoka, a saxophonist who played an active part in a group that symbolized the times, including Hideo Shiraki Quintet, Terumasa Hino Quartet, Count Buffaloes led by Akira Ishikawa, and Freedom Unity. He pursued a cutting-edge musicality while in the mainstream and led the Japanese jazz scene. As a sideman, he wields a number of works, while leaving leaders such as Takeru and Ride and Tie, who have a strong presence in the era as if to wedge. Even in this work 'Soft Landing' recorded in 1978, the sharp sense of time is still alive. Novel groove feeling, emotional melody, and sharp sound image. Listen to all the songs, including the exploding funky tune 'Ode To Naska', the next-level fusion 'Lady Boogie' that grabs the heart, and the stormy 'Ami'.
