Hiromasa Suzuki is a composer/arranger/keyboardist who has been active in a wide range of Japanese musical fields, including jazz, film, television, and commercials. From the end of the 60's to the mid 70's, he was deeply involved in the works of Terumasa Hino, Akira Ishikawa, Jiro Inagaki, and others during the most radical period of their careers.
This album, "High Flying," recorded in 1976, is the culmination of his innovative spirit, which was always one step ahead of the times. The musicianship, which could be called the eve of post-jazz rock/fusion, is the ultimate crossover sound.
The groove, sharpened by the meticulous arrangements, is full of explosiveness and speed, and knocks the listener down. This is a masterpiece that even producer Jiro Inagaki called "the ideal sound of its time.
Now is the time to fully enjoy this freshness and intensity.
