The definitive Japanese space rock band, originally called "Far Out". Klaus Schulze mixed the well known Nipponjin album, a re-recording of previous material, and the excellent Parallel World, the later at Virgin's Manor Studio. Also, Kitaro, venerable new age artist had his start here.
Classically-trained percussionist from Japan, Stomu Yamash'ta's career jumps between the avant-garde, traditional Japanese music, progressive jazz-rock and later in his career, soundtrack and new-age type music. For the progressive music fan, Come to the Edge, Eastwind and Go are not to be missed.
