Maezono Naoki Group, the band in which Konishi Yasuharu plays piano, has a 2nd album coming this month! It's already been almost 2 years since their first. This time the trio (vocals, bass and piano) are joined by drums and trumpet, again covering various smooth songs from the 60-70's originally by the likes of Happy End, Misora Hibari, Sawada Kenji, Dark Ducks, etc., all songs in brand new arrangements.
The album comes on LP and CD, the LP being pressed as an "ever clean" record (using a process that protects it against dust), and the CD coming with 2 extra songs. Also check out the video below.
All songs can be sampled at Love Shop Record (the online shop of Maezono Naoki). Also check out the video below.
