We have just got an album "Noriyuki Makihara Songs From L.A" on February 21, 2007, which features Westcoast/AOR singers 11 covers, originally performed by top Japanese male pop artist named Noriyuki Makihara.
Robbie Dupree, Bobby Caldwell, Tommy Funderburk (Airplay), Bobby Kimball(Toto), Joseph Williams(Toto), Jason Scheff(Chicago), Bill Champlin(Chicago) and other 4 first-class vocalists made a good job. And we should also note supporting musicians such as Tom Keane, Michael Landau. In March, another "Noriyuki Makihara covers" will be released. "Noriyuki Makihara Songs From N.Y." will follow. We will have great vocalists again for this project; Stephen Bishop, Peter Beckett (Player), Bill Cantos, Marc Jordan, Tom Keane, Alex Ligertwood (Santana), Kelly Keagy (Night Ranger). Enjoy those 2 CDs (more exactly with bonus DVDs)!
