Maki Asakawa was an enigmatic jazz and blues singer, composer, and actress who possessed a dark, smoky, throaty contralto. Her physical appearance was as iconic as her singing: she was always clad in black, often in sunglasses and smoking. She recorded over 30 albums between 1970 and the early 2000s. Maki’s black clad and sugarless, petroleum dark coffee voice gets set against a folk-avant-jazz and psych backing. Between the tracks of each song, the listener gets treated to some filed recording like musique concrete insertions, that augment the overall atmospheric quality of this late night alcohol and nicotine stained recording. Stunningly fantastic female vocals and utterly rare.
