2013 celebrated a 10th anniversary year of the solo career of Nakatsuka Takeshi (ex-Qypthone), seeing the release of latest album "Lyrics". Then came this "Big Band Back Beat" album, entirely backed by a large brass band, and full of covers of songs that are Takeshi's roots. First released only locally through Tower Records, this album finally sees a wider release reachable by international fans.
A show to celebrate this release will be held at Motion Blue Yokohama on January 19. Tickets are now on sale.
