A few days ago a re-release of Vini Riley's Domo Arigato album from 1985 is available in the record stores. It was the original release plus an live recording (and also as a DVD) from a concert in Japan. It is still a pleasure listening to Riley at the top of his musical career. He played his guitar like never before and the funky sound added with trumpet and violin is still one that makes me shiver whenever I listen to it. I know a lot of folks that listened to cross-over jazz and funk at this time but Vini beat them all.
