Johnny’s Disk Record is a Japanese label that issued a bunch of interesting jazz LPs back in the ‘70s and ‘80s. One of those was an album by drummer Mitsuaki Katayama and his trio, 1979’s First Flight. The record is a pleasing combination of post-bop, fusion, samba and balladry - Kichiru Sugino’s piano work in particular is at once innovative and melodic. Now First Flight is being reissued by Studio Mule.
