Album Notes
Japanese Smooth Jazz artist Shigeki Kawahara you could say is an internet success story that continues to be told. A very accomplished keyboardist/pianist, he began recording music in 1995 and released his first CD (and to date only full album) “Another World” in 2005. He had been doing music on the side while his day job as an economist takes him around the world. The convenience of the internet however, allowed him to release his music via the world wide web, catching the attention of FM DJs abroad. The album was an online success leading Kawahara-san to form the jazz trio TIG (Three In the Groove) with Toru Ishiwata (guitar) and Hiroki Ide (drums). Previews of their music can be heard online on his myspace page. Kawahara’s and TIG’s music is reminiscent of smooth jazz legends like Joe Sample, Bob James and FourPlay.

"I added your track "Night Flight" to our playlist because it fits very well and I like the vintage touch of the song."
Peter Boehi, DJ of SmoothVibes Radio

Great CD. Look forward to more CDs in the future.


It will be nice to listen when you drive.
It is cool music!
I like go for drive and I would like to listen when I drive long way,

Paul Smith

Every tune is arranged with fine and smooth Jazzy touch.
I really enjoy this CD again and again. The sound is really smooth and Jazzy. In the last track of "Another World" is the only tune with his vocal. His voice sounds really realxed, somthing like Jazz classic of "Perry Como" with a contemporary flavour. Great CD!!
