Haruomi Hosono, Shigeru Suzuki & Tatsuro Yamashita – Pacific (CBS/SONY IMAGE SERIES) [1978]

Pacific  A joint venture between CBS and Sony during the hostile business culture towards foreign companies in Japan years, Pacific (1978) is a treat to the ears, its theme of the southern Pacific ocean and its warm cerulean waters relax its listeners with a fusion of city pop, soft jazz, and that good old 1970’s funk while remaining surprisingly fully instrumental throughout all contributions from artists Haruomi Hosono, Shigeru Suzuki, and Tatsuro Yamashita. A few tracks from the album were later used in later works, and put to good use.

Highly recommended by me, Pacific is a fantastic album that I can always find the time to squeeze in and get comfy with.
