Japanese 1LP Limited Edition Release Date: 19/5/2021 Label: Universal Music Group
Noriki is keyboardist Soichi Noriki – who plays Fender Rhodes, Hammond, and other keys here – in a setting that's a nice blend of soulful fusion and some of the Japanese crossover modes of the time! There's just a bit of vocals on the record – courtesy of singer Yuri Kokubu – but the whole thing moves along with its strongest focus on the instrumental solos – which includes work from Shin Kazuhara on trumpet, Yasuo Hirouchi on trombone, and the great Jake Concepcion on tenor, alto, and baritone – an artist we love from some great records of the 60s, but haven't ever heard this late in his career. The whole thing's got a warm, sunny fusion vibe that really fits the cover – and titles include "You Can Make It", "When The Rain Stops", "Uncle Bearcat", "Easy Way", "Mild Live", and "Night Lights".
