Over the coming weeks I will share an eclectic lucky dip of music that I discovered and loved via subreddit /r/listentothis, Here is no. 3 on the Cosmic Jukebox, Japanese musician Toshiki Kadomatsu and the sun-soaked funk album from 1987, Sea is a Lady
Toshiki Kadomatsu is a Japanese Funk legend who came to the fore in the 80’s for a string of sun-soaked, Miami-Vice inspired bubbly instrumental albums that ooze summery good times in sportscars with bikini-clad women and men sporting white suits and deep tans. Toshiki has been recording for more than three decades and still continues to be prolific and popular in Japan. Sea is a Lady was his most popular album that charted to no.4 in Japan in the mid 80’s.
