A private press rarity that few know of, 'Song of Island' was the third album from pianist Yasuhiro Kohno's trio, recorded live at the jazz club and live house (gig venue) 'Again' in August 1985. Pressed up in small numbers, 'Song for Island' was issued on the private ASCAP Records, set up by pianist and band leader Yasuhiro Kohno. The album is a follow up to Kohno-san's previous two albums, 'Peace' and 'Roma in the Rain', released on the cult Aketa's Disk label. However, unlike the 'Peace' and 'Roma in the Rain' albums, 'Song of Island' has never been reissued before - until now. The title track was included on J Jazz volume 3. This is a very special album that captures a special time in Japanese jazz, when exemplary acoustic jazz was still being performed and recorded by dedicated and talented artists at the height of mid-80s synth pop. 'Song of Island' features four original compositions by Yasuhiro Kohno plus a distinctive take on a jazz standard.
