1976 release work by Kentaro Haneda, one of Japan's leading pianists, who made a figure as a studio musician for many famous artists/singers and continued to work extensively as a composer/arranger after 1980, including media exposure. This work was made when Haneda was 27 years old, before he was well known to many, and is part of the "New Interior Music" series, in which up-and-coming musicians put up crossover sounds. The backing musicians also includes such talented musicians as Akira Ishikawa, Kimio Mizutani, Hideo Ichikawa, Kiyoshi Sugimoto, Takeshi Onodera, Takeru Muraoka, Susumu Kazuhara, Eiji Arai, Koji Hatori, and many others participated in a composition that shows label seriousness. The album features a variety of jazz-based quality tracks, including the soothing smooth jazz of "Feel Like Makin' Love," the moody instrumental "Autumn In New York" and the dopey jazz-funk tune "Us. Above all, this captivating collage jacket is amazing. A beautiful promo copy with obi, insert.

あらゆるアーティストのスタジオミュージシャンとして頭角を現し、80年以降は作曲家/編曲家として活躍後もメディアへの露出も含め幅広い活動を続けた日本を代表するピアニストの一人羽田健太郎による76年作。羽田がまだ頭角を現す前に当たる27歳の時の作品で、新進気鋭のミュージシャン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」の一枚。バックにも石川晶、水谷公生、市川秀男、杉本喜代志、小野寺猛士、村岡建、数原晋、新井栄治、羽鳥幸次など実力派ミュージシャンが参加した本気度が伺える構成。心地よいスムース・ジャズ”Feel Like Makin' Love”、ムーディ・インスト”Autumn In New York”、ドープなジャズ・ファンク・チューン”Us”を筆頭にジャズを基としたクオリティを感じさせてくれる楽曲を収録。そして何と言ってもコラージュされたノスタルジーを誘うジャケットが最高。帯付き美品。
