★Limited edition production

The long-awaited LP release of NRQ's masterful third album Was Here (2015), a four-piece playing rich and mellow instrumental music that transcends country and time, is now available!

Waz Here" is the third album by NRQ, an instrumental band comprising Yuki Yoshida (erhu), Takuma Makino (guitar), Masanori Hattori (double bass) and Kanji Nakao (alto saxophone, clarinet, drums and trombone), whose fifth album "Komon" (Sweet Dreams Press) was released just recently and has been well received.The rich variety and fertility of the music, the organic performance of the four musicians, the colouring of the three guests MC.shirafu (The Natsuyasumi Band, Katatsumoi, Utsukushiki Hikari, etc.) on steelpan and trumpet, Emerson Kitamura (mmm, Kissell, ex-JAGATARA, ex-Mute Beat, etc.) on keyboards, and percussionist The colouring of the three guests, Okyon (Nakamura Joe & Eastwoods, etc.) on percussion, all intertwined in a brilliant masterpiece.The warm, exquisite sound of the analogue tape recordings and the superb artwork by designer Saki Soda, which populates the mysterious works of photographer Masayuki Shiota, make it sound as if it has been waiting to be released on LP. This is music that was once "here", but nowhere to be found.
