Nomiya Maki/Fernanda Takai "Maki Takai No Jetlag"

Nomiya Maki (ex-Pizzicato Five) unites with Brazilian singer Fernanda Takai (Pato Fu) for a mini-album containing songs selected by the two. Included are a new original song by Maki called "Nagoya" with Japanese lyrics, P5's "A Message Song", Ishida Ayumi's "hitori ni shite ne", Pato Fu's "Saudade", and a live version of bossa nova "O Barquinho" also sung in Japanese (according to this Japanese article).

Although the two have performed shows together in both Brazil and Japan, here the music was recorded in Brazil while Maki recorded her vocals in Japan, and the whole mixed together. The whole is produced by John Ulhoa, Pato Fu's guitarist and husband of Fernanda.

Wow! Just pre-ordered my copy from! Can't wait for more Maki stuff. It's been al least 5 years since her last album!

I wonder what happened with that material she recorded with Arling and Cameron...

I went to a Maki / Takai concert here in Brazil a little over a year ago - totally mind-blowing. HUGE P5 fan here, I even got to meet Maki backstage, and got my INSTANT REPLAY cd autographed! Lucky bastard, me.
