Miyuki (The One) presents us with her first solo album. Here she plays keyboards and does beautiful vocal harmonies as well as arranging and production. The album’s title comes from the participation of her longtime friend, Mick Taylor (The Rolling Stones).
The fact that this album is difficult to categorize is one of its many beauties. At times it delves into Jazz, while at other times it’s more into New Age and there is definitely a touch of Progressive mixed into it.
It is beautifully executed, on analog recording equipment (at Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music’s Gallery Studio). The music is quite upbeat and not over-crowded; a very well-balanced mix.
Of note is Mick Taylor’s performance. His style is quite different from what we’re used to hearing from him.
All in all a great album. One you can relax to, one you can use as a background to an activity, but overall one you will want to just listen to. And enjoy!
