Masayuki Takayanagi and New Century Music Institute - Ginparis Session (1963)

This is one of the earliest live recordings by Japanese jazz musicians, made when the country's jazz industry was in its infancy and there were no real jazz clubs. The leader and guitarist Masayuki Takayanagi and young members of the ambitiously named New Century Music Institute came together on one special night in 1963. Privately recorded on tape by one of the supporters, future jazz stars such as Masahiko Togashi, Yosuke Yamashita and Terumasa Hino play inspired solo after another, the combined effect of which is electrifying. Breaking out from the molds of swing and bebop, the sound they created was very progressive.
