The “Music Interior” flagship released in 1985 on Klaus Schulze’s Innovative Communication: Morning Picture. Bassist Yoshio Suzuki’s debut on the imprint was his sophomore solo release, one that retired his straight jazz past — years playing with Art Blakey and Stan Getz — in favor of a foray into the lush, dreamy electronics he is now known for. Entirely self-composed, on Morning Picture Suzuki plays keys, bass, drums, synths, and even a Linn drum machine to form a reinvented musical identity. The result is one of the great electro-acoustic environmental jazz records: brimming with sweet, melancholic melodies and deep impressionistic ambience. A masterpiece.
