2008 reissue of this album from the master percussionist who studied Jazz drumming at Berklee School of Jazz. In the 1970's he recorded a string of innovative albums for Island records which utilized 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 create 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. Esoteric.
Way ahead of its time!

"I bought the record in the late 70's but wore it out. Glad to see the finally released it on CD. This is a very cool fusion/new-age sound. Outstanding tune would be "Crossing The Line".
Probably the 1st Supergroup, featured Steve Winwood, Al Dimeola, Michael Shrieve, Klaus Schulze & Stomu Yamashta."
Brilliant, epic 70s album FINALLY on CD!!!

"You have GOT to hear this album, buy it AT ONCE while it's still available! This is a true conceptual art rock album with an international lineup which works brilliantly. Even the wordy liner notes are reproduced in booklet form! Top quality reissue from Red Cherry. I am so happy to finally, FINALLY hear this album again I'm beside myself.
Influential music which is fun to listen to. One of the best albums of the late 70s. Extended improvisations supporting a central musical theme. It really is on an epic scale.
BUY this CD NOW while it's still available. This album ought to be a lot better known than it is.
