We have always had a special place in our hearts for Shoji Yokouchi’s Greensleeves. Standards, original tunes, and the title track are interpreted in breezy and surprisingly soulful ways. The ace guitarist is given immeasurable support by his band and guest organist Yuri Tashiro. Her playing is moody, fiery and funky: often at the same time! Impex’s Limited Edition vinyl reissue preserves the original’s clear, pristine sound (check out the bass on Yuri’s organ!) while improving surface noise and definition.

This rare gem of Tee Fujii’s repertoire is another entertaining listen for TBM fans from Impex Records!

BOB LEVI, POSITIVE FEEDBACK, ISSUE 95, January 8th, 2018

I am familiar, of course, with this prestige audiophile label from Japan, but only own two of their recordings: Midnight Sugar and Girl Talk. Both are famous superb recordings, and offer amazing audiophile sound and performances of top notch jazz arrangements. They have been reissued often by TBM and other companies, worldwide. That said, Greensleeves has never been reissued on LP by anyone, anywhere! Maybe Greensleeves was just too exciting, too bold, too dynamic, too melodic, too unusual to include a Hammond B3 organ, or maybe just ALL of the above!
