Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Ise Shozo and Okubo Kazuhisa formed the folk duo Kaze in 1975 and recorded their fourth original album Umikaze in LA. It was their first recording overseas. Local musicians such as R.A. Martin and Geffrey Hales participated in the recording, as well as Mizutani Kimio, Sato Jun, Takebe Hideaki, Moriya Jun, and others from Japan. In the relaxed atmosphere with a good rapport between the members, the album adopted the California sound. It became a masterpiece reflecting the newest trends in music, such as fusion and crossover. Originally released in 1977, the album consists of 11 tracks including the title track with it's beautiful intro riff.
