Akira Sakata - "Ballad for Taco"
For a third week in a row we feature a song about former Japanese Flyweight champion Seisaku Saito in this weekly musical interlude. This time it's a jazz track from Akira Sakata called "Ballad for Taco", which is a reference to Saito's stage name of Hachiro Tako.
We'll accept we're not big on Jazz though we do know that Sakata is one of the biggest names in Japanese Jazz music and that this track was originally on the album "Tacology".
For those who enjoy Jazz this is likely of more interest than the tracks we include that are limited by lyrical language barriers, but again we know Jazz is a musical style that can be hard to grasp, and we certainly have no grasp of it at all.
Some things don't fit in elsewhere on the site so have been put here as a result.
