1982 album from Japan's visionary saxophonist Yasuaki Shimizu, the man behind Mariah 'Utakata Ho Hibi'. Through its 8 suite-like tracks, Kakashi transports the listener into Yasuaki's colourful sound-world, a fusion of outre jazz, new wave, ambient, and dub practices. Another high water mark in the 80s Japanese underground which has gathered cult status in recent years, and considered to be a highlight of Yasuaki's solo career.
