Goo Too progressive

Enlarge this picture! Classic Album featuring Klaus Schulze, Jess Roden, Michael Shrieve and Al Di Meola Booklet With Photos & Liner Notes. Go Too was the final album in Stomu Yamashta'sGo trilogy of albums. The first two works ( Go! and Go! Live from Paris both available on Esoteric Recordings) released by Island Records featured the Japanese percussionist and instrumentalist collaborate with such stellar names as Steve Winwood, Klaus Schulze and Michael Shrieve to produce two classic albums of Progressive and Ambient Rock. Moving to Arista Records in 1977, YAMASHTA completed his trilogy with another excellent work that featured his previous collaborators (with the exception of Steve Winwood). This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the original master tapes, restores all artwork in full and follows on from the successful reissues of Yamashta'sIsland catalogue by Esoteric earlier this year.

Go progressive

Enlarge this picture! Stomu Yamashta is a master percussionist who studied jazz drumming at the Berklee School Of Jazz. In the 1970’s he recorded a string of innovative albums for Island records which utilised the talents of such leading musicians as Hugh Hopper, Maurice Pert, Steve Winwood, Michael Shrieve and Klaus Schulze, fusing his percussion talents with jazz, electronic and classical music to creat an ambient form of music all of his own. His music has been used by the Royal Ballet.

Originally released in April 1976, “Go” is perhaps Yamashta’s finest achievement and also featured collaborators Steve Winwood and Michael Shrieve along with artists such as Klaus Schulze and ex-Traffic and future Can bassist Rosko Gee.
