Aki Takase - Minerva's Owl (LP)
Undersung 1981 jazz release, Minerva's Owl, features a heavy hitting quartet made up of Takase, Motohiko Hino, Nobuyoshi Ino, and David Liebman. Straight-ahead with some exceptionally intimate moments - see clips below. Takase's tasteful synthesizer touches are an added bonus.
