Enjoying this one a lot, thanks for the post! Who knows the credits for the B-side? There's guitar & trumpet added, but I can't find any reference to whom on the album art or searching web.

Solomon said...

Thank you!

It does look like the B side is off another album though.

Any chance of a re-up please?

Masabumi, Masabumi, one of us, one of us...
The most recent recordings I've found of him are on Paul Motian's niece's blog "UnclePaul'sJazzCloset." Mp3's unreleased of solo piano.

Thanks again for this, now complete.
The first post with the B-side from a different release, I am still curious what that was? It was 19:10 long and had guitar & trumpet added. I looked around a bit to try to identify that, but had no luck.
Thanks for all of these fantastic posts!
