Nik’s back behind the turntables this week and he doesn’t disappoint, delving deep into his collection at Mukatsuku Towers for a strictly vinyl excursion into Japanese Jazz territory. With just under an hour’s worth of killer jazz and jazz fusion material from the likes of Toshiko Akiyoshi, Koji Moriyama, Mikie Yoshino, Mikio Masuda, Nimiko Kikuchi, Sadao Watanabe and something brand new from Shuya Okino, this is certainly one for the cratediggers.
