Kimiko Kasai - Butterfly (1979)

Positively sublime, pop-oriented soul-jazz from Japanese jazz singer Kimiko Kasai. In case you need more convincing: Butterfly is, seemingly, a full-on collaboration between Kasai and Herbie Hancock, and features the great Bennie Maupin on sax. Run, don't walk.

Track listing:
1. Thought It Was You
2. Tell Me a Bedtime Story
3. Head in the Clouds
4. Maiden Voyage
5. Harvest Time
6. Sunlight
7. Butterfly
8. As

This love in my heart

  1. Man, a trip to Opium Hum is surely worth the time. Your genre hopping madness is so rewarding to like minded folks, such as myself. It's been a long, long time since a music site has actually made me giddy with anticipation of what might come next~ Kudos.

  2. Thanks for sharing this. Listened to it on my way to work and I think that sick vocoder/vocal jam at the end of Thought it Was You made my day, oh, 200% better

  3. Thanks for sharing this hidden gem.
