This post prompted me to post a vinyl rip (wav) of Yosuke Yamashita Trio - Clay

I saw this band live at Montreux in 76, followed by Sun Ra and then Cecil Taylor 6tet.

Thanks much for all of these. I'm especially glad to hear the *Ghosts*, because I had been under the mistaken impression that, at that time, YY was playing mostly subdued standards. Not to cast aspersions on that stuff, but it's the higher-energy late 60s/early 70s stuff that does it for me. I discovered YY while I was searching Dusty Groove for some CT, and Cecil's name came up in the description of a YY album. YY has his own thing going, for sure, but I can equally see the justice of the comparison.

Thanks. Who's the vocalist?

There is no information in the booklet about it.
Probably it's Akira Sakata or less likely Y.Y.

Most likely Sakata, as I've seen (and heard) him sing on some more recent video clips. And there's singing on the Sakata trio live Moers 1981 recording posted here.
