The Japanese Discovery of America by Peter Duus
English | Mar. 1997 | ISBN: 0312163789 | 226 Pages | PDF | 11 MB

This brief documentary history chronicles the nineteenth-century (1837-1871) encounters between Japan and the United States that led to the opening of Japanese society to Western influence. An extensive introduction describes American attempts to overturn Japan's long-standing policy of isolation (culminating in the 1853-1854 Perry Expedition) and considers the lasting effects of Japan's fascination with a culture radically different from its own.

Jazz / Jazz Funk / Fusion

Reissue with the latest 24-bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. Fast and funky fusion from David Matthews – building off the sound of his later Kudu recordings with a sweet electric groove! The album's got a pretty full approach overall – with Matthews on electric piano, and directing a large group of players that includes Mike Maineri, Michael Brecker, Jon Faddis, Shunzo Ohno, and Ronnie Cuber – and a number of tracks feature a vocal chorus that includes Ullanda McCullough and Yvonne Lewis. The overall style is slick, but not in a bad way – and Matthews more than meets the Japanese fusion sound head to head for this non-US release from the time!
