The third part of the Three Blind Mice “Great Three” Misty is perhaps the most renowned, the most accomplished. The best-selling title in Tee Fujii’s legendary canon, Tsuyoshi Yamamoto’s trio starts out slow and quiet and picks up speed, nuance, and dynamic propulsion throughout the seven varied compositions here. Yamamoto shows his “heavy right hand” throughout, captured with fine detail and explosive level by engineer Yoshihiko Kannari, lending a verisimilitude that has rarely–if ever–been equaled.

Available for the first time in pristine 24K gold compact disc, this Swinging affair finds Yamamoto and his bandmates (drummer Tetsujiro Obara and bassist Isoo Fukui) meld into one cohesive whole, playing for and against one another in a swirling cloud of color and sound.

Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the same sources as the classic Cisco/Impex 45 rpm vinyl, you can bring one of TBM’s finest albums of all time into your listening room, your car, or computer playback system with the assurance of Impex quality Misty has also heralded for.

Impex has created a dynamic package for this Japanese jazz chestnut, with hardcover book package, new design elements and photos and “Rhythm Planet” hose Tom Schnabel’s liner notes, written especially for this release.
