Personnel: Horace Silver (piano); Junior Cook (tenor saxophone); Blue Mitchell (trumpet); Gene Taylor (bass instrument, bass guitar); John Harris, Jr. (drums).
Audio Remasterer: Rudy Van Gelder.
Despite its title, and its cover art (which shows Horace Silver seated with two Japanese geishas in a traditional Japanese rock garden), 1962'S TOKYO BLUES is not particularly influenced by East Asian modalities or structures. Instead, cuts like "Too Much Sake" and "Sayonara Blues" find Silver mining the sophisticated hard bop vein for which he's known, assimilating elements of Latin groove and deep blues into his soulful, swinging sound. Top-shelf personnel, which includes trumpeter Blue Mitchell and saxophonist Junior Cook, makes this another winner in Silver's discography.
