Jake H. Concepcion, a saxophonist from the Philippines who has left a major mark in Japan, released this album in 1983 with top musicians such as Nobuyuki Shimizu, Hiroshi Sato, and Yuichi Tokashiki. The album features a number of tunes that are worth listening to, including "Hong Kong Blues" arranged tune of Hoagy Carmichael, who is also known for his arrangement of Haruomi Hosono, "Pure Imagination," a dreamy mellow funk tune original composed groovy fusion "Tonight The Night"  and "Girl Talk" which has an adult oriented feeling. This thick, stretched voice adds to the atmosphere.

日本でも大きな足跡を残したフィリピン出身のサックス奏者Jake H. Concepcionが清水信之,佐藤博,渡嘉敷祐一などトップミュージシャンと共にリリースした83年作。細野晴臣でもお馴染みHoagy Carmichaelのアレンジ”Hong Kong Blues”、ドリーミー・メロウ・ファンク”Pure Imagination”、オリジナルスコアのグルーヴィなフュージョン”Tonight The Night”、アダルティな雰囲気の”Girl Talk”など筆頭に聴き応えある曲群。この太く伸びのある声が雰囲気を一層引き立てますね。
