Osamu - Benzaiten, 1974


A seamless blend of traditional Japanese music with jazz, prog rock, and funk, Benzaiten takes off into new age, with sparse electronic drumming, bells, and synth sweeps. Hosono on synths. Benzaiten takes its name from the Buddhist equivalent of Saraswati, "goddess of everything that flows: water, words, speech, eloquence, music and by extension, knowledge." Epic.
