First Word Records is incredibly proud to bring you an exclusive vinyl-only re-issue of Takuya Kuroda’s highly-sought after album ‘Rising Son‘.
‘Rising Son‘ was first released on the seminal Blue Note Records imprint 10 years ago in 2014, with Takuya being the first Japanese artist to sign to the label. The record received widespread critical acclaim, hitting No.1 on Japan’s jazz charts at the time, with original copies now fetching hundreds of pounds on Discogs and the like. There has long been high demand for a re-press of this album, and we’re very pleased to say it’s finally here, a decade on.
The re-issue is to be released via London-based Worldwide Award-winning label First Word Records, who coincidentally celebrate their 20th year running in 2024. First Word released Takuya’s highly-revered previous two albums, ‘Fly Moon Die Soon‘ (2020) and ‘Midnight Crisp‘ (2022).
