Ayako Hosokawa – A Whisper of Love (IMPEX Records)
Available for the First Time on Audiophile 180g Vinyl LP!
Incredible Three Blind Mice album! Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio!
Returning to her early Three Blind Mice period form, Ayako Hosokawa delivered one of her most popular albums ever in 1993 with A Whisper of Love. Working with a fine ensemble of American jazz players (along with pianist Shota Osabe on two tracks), her delivery had developed a quiet confidence: relaxed and playful. Available for the first time ever on Audiophile 180 Gram Vinyl LP, this great set of classic torch songs gives Ms. Hosokawa a matchless showcase for her melodious tone and buttery delivery. Impex Records has tightened up the running order for a more focused listening experience, including all the best tracks from the original album.
Cut by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio, you can once again enjoy one of TBM's most popular singers in your listening room with the assurance of quality Impex is heralded for. Quiet surfaces allow the crystal clear tone to shine every time you play the LP, again and again.
A new design has been created for the back of the jacket, including new design elements and photos from the Three Blind Mice archive. The iconic front cover was left intact. Come experience anew this great TBM classic in its vital new form!
