Trombone player Eiji Arai who has been active in front lines since the 1960s, left his only work under his own name for the "New Interior Music" series, a series with a crossover sound. Same as other works, talented players participate as back musicians such as Jun Fukamachi, Masami Kawahara, Larry Sunaga, Hideo Ichikawa, Kiyoshi Sugimoto, Minoru Muraoka, Susumu Kazuhara, Kentaro Haneda and others. Among them, "Moonlight In Vermont" and "My Prayer," both accented by Jun Fukamachi's Moog synths, Latin cover of Duke Ellington's "Solitude" and the relaxing, easy-listening tune "The Swan" are particularly excellent. The jackets, which is similar to Hosono's Paraiso (this one was released earlier), is also great. Beautiful promo copy with obi, insert

60年代より第一線で活躍してきたトロンボーン奏者 新井栄治がクロスオーヴァーサウンドを掲げたシリーズ「ニュー・インテリア・ミュージック」に残した唯一の単独名義作品。バックにも他の作品同様に深町純、川原正美、ラリー須永、市川秀男、杉本喜代志、村岡建、数原晋、羽田健太郎、羽鳥幸次など実力派ミュージシャンが参加。中でも深町純のムーグ・シンセがアクセントとなった"Moonlight In Vermont", "My Prayer"の両曲、Duke Ellingtonのラテンカバー”Solitude”、リラックスするようなイージーリスニング調”The Swan”は特に秀逸。ぱらいそ似(こちらの方が前にリリース)のジャケもグー。帯付き美品
