On 14 January 2017, half a million people in over 10,000 individual clubs around the world celebrated the 100th release of this iconic workout, crossing time zones and national borders. Starting at the spiritual home of BODYPUMP in Auckland at midnight New Zealand time, workouts followed the sun through 100 countries from Asia to Europe, Africa, America and all points between to create “the world’s biggest workout”
On the 1976 Silver Session Tour of Japan, Barry Harris played the first set with Sam Jones (bass) and Leroy Williams (drums), then 'the world's greatest Jazz guitarist' (according to Don Schlitten) Jimmy Raney took Harris's spot and played a stellar trio set of his own with Jones and Williams. This deluxe CD includes a 16- page book with original liner notes essay by producer Don Schlitten plus extra photos and session notes, and a new essay by jazz journalist Bill Milkowski who notes: 'His obituary in the New York Times called him one of the most gifted and influential postwar jazz guitarists in the world. Those gifts are on full display on Live in Tokyo'. First US reissue since the original 1976 LP release.
