Takao - Stealth
Stealth – an album to coax over time, finding gentle passage with deep yet feather-light compositions through enchanted spaces. The debut album from Tokyo-based artist Takao contains thirteen miniatures, delightfully arranged to evoke and skirt genre influences from classical, new age and pop, calling to mind innovative voices like Hiroshi Yoshimura and Debussy. Delicate but not deferential, this expertly sequenced expression is a welcome introduction to a talented mind. The first offering of 2019 from EM Records, straight from Japan to Commend to you.
