A Beginner's Guide To Ryuichi Sakamoto
00:24:24

I was compelled to record this after watching the latest solo piano recital of Ryuichi's. It felt like now or never! Here I talk about my history, experiences and recommendations as it pertains to the goat Ryuichi Sakamoto. Save a bunch of the albums I mentioned after listening to this, and please, take your time to enjoy his discography!
