Ryo Fukui - Scenery (2023 Repress)LABEL: Solid Records
Ryo Fukui is a famous pianist born in Hokkaido. His fresh and delicate playing has attracted many listeners, and his first album, "Scenery", has been highly acclaimed worldwide. Fukui, who started playing piano at the age of 22, recorded this album at the age of 28. The earnest performance of his youthful days shakes the emotions of the listener in a pleasant way. The swinging "It Could Happen To You," the exhilarating and joyful "Early Summer," and the late-autumn night air of "Scenery" are just a few examples. The "Hokkaido-like sentiment" that blends in with Fukui's qualities, combining both scale and subtlety, is pleasant. Sprouting greenery, dazzling clear streams, clear skies, snow falling without a sound.... The beautiful scenery spun by Ryo Fukui lives on forever here.
