The album was recorded in Los Angeles
And of course multiple Watanabe releases.
Mainly chasing Kazumi, as I like his style, taste, ear, skill, adventurism, compositions, and range of cohorts...
So he becomes one of a few where I want more.
At this point I have 28 titles with him now, one more on the way via Japan Post.
I'll look up the names you mention, and see what's there.
Pandora (Resonance Vox with Kazumi), bought out of the Circuit City Bargain Bin in 1998 or so, was the first CD I had with him, it caught my ear, and led to collecting more.
I'd like to see Hiromi and Kazumi get together, since she played with David Fiuczynski, it shouldn't be that much of a stretch.
