SADAO WATANABE Paysages

Album · 1971 · Fusion
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners

Japanese reeds player Sadao Watanabe is a living country's jazz legend. Started playing in early 60s, he introduced bossa nova to his homeland's listeners and built strong hard bop following there.Starting from late 60s Sadao Watanabe became most internationally popular Japanese jazz musician as well. His early fusion albums are briliant, unfortunately under pressure of time fashion starting from mid 70s Sadao switched to more safe and commercially secure pop jazz which he continues playing till now.

Sadao recorded only few fusion albums but almost all of them are true gems. "Paysages", recorded in 1971 with bassist Gary Peacock and three Japanese musicians, is great example.

Heavily based on another rising Japanese fusion star Masabumi Kikuchi electric piano sound, "Paysages" contains five originals(three Watanabe's, one - Kikuchi's and one Peacock's), all perfectly executed memorable tunes, with solid groove,the music which will make Weather Report or Return To Forever famous very soon.

Not really a Watanabe's album (obviously released under Watanabe's as leader name because of marketing reasons since Sadao for the time of release was way much more known and popular comparing with other members) but solid collective work, "Paysages" is one of the best Japanese fusion albums released ever. Watanabe will leave such music very soon for the favor of more commercial sound, Masabumi Kikuchi will continue releasing albums in similar key and become one of the great star of Japanese fusion.

Classic album of Japanese fusion, must have for everyone interested in genre.

Sadao Watanabe is one between best known outside of Japan Japanese jazz musicians. In late 60s- early 70s he was on the top of his popularity playing pop-jazz and soft fusion (both genres are far of my interest in music).

Swiss Air , recorded in mid 70s, is his very special album - and I love it! Full-acoustic quartet with excellent pianist Takehiro Honda plays Watanabe's neo-bop originals live at Montreux!You can't believe what a different music it is!

Sadao plays energetic and inventive reeds without being afraid to disappoint his regular soap-jazz fans, pianist Takehiro Honda is a hero of the day - his excellent fast,technical and groovy piano almost steals all the show!

Rhythm section is very competent, and all music has slight African flavor,characteristic for Watanabe's more commercial works of same period. Excellent (if too short)and perfectly recorded live show for dedicated public,it sounds great even on old vinyl (not sure if this album was ever re-released on CD).

On this album Sadao Watanabe shows how enjoyable music he could play when he just is free to play what he likes to play.No final verdict to Watanabe's music could be done without listening to this his perfect album.
