Shoji Yokoughi - Mr Guitar

Today's post is by talented Japanese guitarist Shoji Yokoughi aka Mr Guitar. When I first saw this album I almost passed on buying it because of the naff cover. I'm glad I yielded to my vinyl acquisition compulsion however, as the music is way better than the packaging. Think of the Charlie Byrd post 'Aquarius' of a couple of months ago, mixed with a little Louis Bonfa, and you're getting close. The album is a collection of tasty Latin numbers played on a classical guitar with some flair by Shoji san, artfully backed-up by his group The Blue Dreamers.
