A reissue of Midori Takada and Masahiko Satoh’s 1990 masterpiece Lunar Cruise - available on vinyl for the first time ever, as well as on CD, sourced from the original studio masters, with all new liner notes.

Arguably the best kept secret in Midori Takada’s fascinating discography, Lunar Cruise is an under the radar masterpiece that captures Takada (on marimba and minimal percussion set-up) and Satoh (on Korg M1 and Yamaha DX7II synths, Ensoniq EPS sampler, and acoustic piano) vibrantly fusing traditional African and Asian percussion with jazz, ambient, and minimalism. The album also features the great Haruomi Hosono (Yellow Magic Orchestra, Happy End...) and Kazutoki Umezu.
