Format: Audio CD
released in the late '80s, watanabe was wrapping up his stint with the fusion trend that most artists did in the '70s. i don't blame him for being 10 years behind the times, because i love fusion and thought it died out too quickly. kazumi was one of the few last hold-outs to keep it going in the '80s (although he didn't switch from jazz to fusion 'til the '80s).....and his take on fusion started out relatively normal (albums like ganaesia and to chi ka, which are good, solid attempts at regular fusion), then he switched to a more individual persona which included more of the new decade's rock sounds and beat structures mixed with his own unique japanese musical influences. the resulting sounds made for some of his greatest and most memorable albums, such as mobo 1, mobo 2, the spice of life, etc.....this album, kilowatt, catches the end of that era which features a few of his indiviualized '80s-style fusion with a japanese influence, but over half of the album features more of a return to a more straight-ahead electric jazz remaniscent of how kuzumi started out. his electric guitar talent is well-showcased, both in the more rockin' fusion numbers and in the jazzier tunes......kw's playing will surely not disappoint....and 1 or 2 of the mellow tunes have a distinct japanese sound that kazumi has used in the past to make his music unique in the worlds of jazz and fusion.....it's a plus on this album. featured artists on this disc are bunny brunel, whose bass work is fantastic here, jazz drum phenom john wackerman, patrick moraz playing great keyboards (as he has with a number of british rock groups), and the occasional appearances by 2 alumni from weather report: wayne shorter on sax & alex acuna on percussion. everyone does a great job with fine and often unique music.Read more ›

I first heard this on a radio program in Philadelphia called, Friday Night Fusion.(A Temple University radio station called WRTI)in the early
90's. All the music is great, but the bass player Bunny Brunel really stands out on both fretted and fretless bass.
If you like tight grooves and melodic music, this is the ticket! It's a combination of funk, jazz, instrumental ballads, and japanese
infused melodies. Musicians and average listeners can appreciate this! Kazumi is a great jazz guitarist from japan. He has a brother or
cousin named Sadauo Watanabe that plays saxaphone in his own right and on this recording. You can check them all out on YouTube.

Darn!!! That person who provided the listing of the musicians stole my thunder . I've just recently learned how to create paragraphs on Amazon , you see . Point is , everyone here is correct . I drive a car ALL day for a living . I've listened to this date a LOT . At all manner of volumes . The virtuosity is amazing . Most of the songs are solid as well . I'm not big on synths . I'll make an exception here though . As should you . Amazing group of players . Doing what they do best . Solid . Listen uP
