Aya Project - 1st Demo (January 23, 2018)
#1
This one is out today on CD-R and apparently its a set by keyboardist Aya Ishgami, who was on that all-star keyboardist album 'Battle of Fortress' last year. It's produced by Jill's Project's Masashi Okagaki. She's been doing a Terra Rosa cover band with ex-Crystal Arrow bassist Sumito Fujita apparently. Features a Hammond organ and Moog syntheiser. Can't for the life of me find any sound for it unfortunately.

Track List:
1 prologue
2 Go Foward
3 Akershus
4 epilogue

Well there's no trailer, but she has put up a video of her kit:



Price: 1,080円

Please bear it mind I'm always busy though and it may take a while!

This could be pretty decent, her being a Masashi Okagaki student and all. If she can play and write anywhere near as good as Okagaki, it should be good.

Just bought it, but it’s not clear from the (limited) CD-R packaging whether it’s just pure solo keyboard work or whether there are other instruments on it - seems like possibly the former.

Ms. Ishigami is credited w/ organ and keyboards, and Okagaki-san gets the production credit, but that’s your lot.

OK, so I've had a chance to give it a listen now. It's really two tracks with an intro and an outro (as opposed to 4 full tracks), but it's pretty enjoyable.

It's an instrumental band recording, but the players of the non-keyboard instruments aren't credited - not something I'm keen on and the only other time I've seen it is on Mai Yajima's albums, but it is what it is.

Recommended if you like 70s prog & Deep Purple kind of sounds, I'd say it's a promising debut and well worth checking out.
