More Info
"Pacific Breeze" documents  Japan’s blast into the stratosphere. By the 1960s, the nation had achieved a postwar miracle, soaring to become the world’s second largest economy.

Japan’s financial buoyancy also permeated its popular culture, birthing an audio analog called City Pop, an amalgam of AOR, R&B, Jazz Fusion, Funk, Boogie and Disco.

Includes classics from Taeko Ohnuki, Hiroshi Sato and the ever-present genius of Haruomi Hosono.
