Sadao Watanabe Paysages

It seems that Bitches Brew was the inspiration for Paysages with that familiar Rhodes induced electro-acoustic sound.  The way the drums lightly tiptoe into "Space is Not a Place" even reminds me of the intro to "Pharaoh's Dance".  But the five sensibilities at work here make this album (and the other two from the session) seem like worlds away.  Good stuff.
