Studio Mule present a reissue of Doctor Umezu Diva's Diva, originally released in 1988. Doctor Umezu Diva is Japanese sax player Kazutoki Umezu's one-off project which he invited two female artists: legendary marimba player Midori Takada and vocalist, pianist, and half of Japanese new wave band Colored Music, Ichiko Hashimoto. This album was one of the best kept, secret jazz albums from Japan; it's really hard-to-find and very limited. Dubby from Ondas Tokyo - who compiled Midnight In Tokyo Vol. 2 (STUDIOMUL 006CD/LP, 2018) on Studio Mule - brought this record to Studio Mule's attention. This album is a unique mixture of modern classical sound and avant-garde jazz, which is kind of similar with Strata East or Nimbus.
