P5 Tokyo: It Is The Happy Cool!

In Stereo Sound.

Looking back in re-exploring some of my more selfish pleasures in music form the mid-late 1990’s. One such was “Pizzicato Five”. P5 was a breakout outfit from Japan that manged to make a splash here in the N. America. Mod J-Pop deejay dance, jazzy, r&b, happy music. Sampling a lot of US records fronted my a model like singer. Maki Nomiya and Yasuharu Konishi.

P5 Wikipedia.

So what if 60 percent was in Japanese, it really doesn’t matter when you’re jamming out to the beats.
