Charlie Mariano and Toshiko Akiyoshi



Charlie Mariano and Toshiko Akiyoshi.
East and West.

RCA RVL-5518.

Very very special album recorded in March 1963, once again provided by that man G.Raf. Ms Toshiko Akiyoshi performance is totally sublime, and supports Mariano beautifully. Haru-No-Umi is simply breathtaking.
