Previously played Squidco store copy, used for cataloging and samples, in excellent condition.

"This is the first CD of Nasuno Mitsuru a.k.a. "Groove Master", top bass player of Tokyo underground music field. The years for the recordings are from 1998 to 1999 as the title. M3 & M4 were included in "Improvised Music from Japan" 10CD set, this "Prequel.." CD is a kind of complete version. All tunes are composed / improvised / effected experimentally but we can feel a kind of mellowness, tenderness, humor, etc. Here it is singular work. Also note remarkable style of each collaborated musician (indicated song listing). The last tune, bonus track (+1) is the demo, suggest his next work."-Doubtmusic

"SALLE GAVEAU"had tour in Europe in this 2008 summer. He is also a great composer, he offers some compositions to "KIKI".
