Wonderful album from the Japanese pianist Makoto Terashita featuring Bob Berg and Yoshiaki Masuo. 3 excellent originals from Terashita plus a couple of standards. Howard Stanislevic was good friends with Makoto during his time in NYC and wrote this to me about Terashita and the album : In 1977 or '78, Makoto was in NYC along with Shoji and others such as Terumasa Hino. I became good friends with Makoto and played with him often. Had him over my apt. and played acoustic guitar (my Japanese-made Epiphone steel-string flat-top) and piano in my living room, in fact. We also played in my friend's basement with other local cats from Queens. His wife was pregnant when they went back to Japan. We ate in ChinaTown together once, and she even cooked for me once in the apt. they were subletting. He's a very nice guy and a true artist! Best piano player I ever played with. He came here to play, learn and make his album, and washed dishes in restaurants to make ends meet! He probably didn't get much sleep while he was here, but he knew enough English to get by.
