lion dance

Japanese Fusion Jazz band Hiroshima's 'Lion Dance' is a Balearo Disco classic, but it needs slowing down (imo), at 132 bpms, the track races forward at a dizzying pace, but drop it down 10 bpms or so and the magic kicks in. You can find the track on Hiroshima's 1979 eponymous album, or even on an Arista 12" (not pricey at all). I have a few Hiroshima albums, not however for their Disco value, but as they moved well into the 80's their take on fusion became much less interesting. Sunday breeze and a definite hint of spring in the air...
