If I recall correctly, Kuninaka and Koyama also played with Aki Takase and Yosuke Yamashita around that time. This one's new to me. Thanks, Nick!

Hence, Dancing Yosuke, Otto

never heard of Kuninaka, he did a very good job in A2, by the way. Dancing Yosuke is a killer, all in all, great performance, thank you, Nick!

Igor, I checked: Kuninaka and Koyama were on the YY Tribute to Mal Waldron album. Recorded in 1980. You might have heard it...

Also "A Figure of Yosuke Yamashita v1"

Oh Nick, I've only seen images of the sleeve of "A Figure of YY vol.1+2". Must be a treat to listen to it/them.

Otto, yep, i've heard "Tribute to Mal Waldron", guess i'll listen to it one more time soon, it'll be interesting to make some comparisons with "Dancing Islands" : )

A Figure Of YY is on CD now, as "Jugemu"

Thanks for the tip, Nick. I ordered the Jugemu SHM-CD. Kinda pricey, though. But YY is usually worth it.
