Koichi Yabori is a God amongst fusion guitarists. I have an album he featured on by a band called WYSIWYG (What you Sing Is What You Get) from 1997, and it's excellent stuff, though much more laid back in style than his work with 'Fragile'. They did another album called 'Reflector' in 2002 as well.
'Fragile' belong on here for sure, as do WYSIWYG...Maybe there should just be a page for Koichi Yabori with them all lumped together? I dont know. Confused
One thing's for sure - we need more samples!!
 
Here's a couple of samples from WYSIWYG's 'Reflector' album:
 
 
 
 
 
Doesn't seem to be much available for 'Fragile' though
 
Both 'Fragile' and WYSIWYG are on Proggnosis:

As well as Koichi Yabori as a solo artist:

Perhaps Keishiro has some info on where we might be able to listen to more samples fom them?

Nice stuff! I'll alert the JR/F team. And Keishiro might know more about them, but I feel like he would have already suggested them if he had. I'll try to dig around for some.

Nice suggestion, we added all three groups to the jazz site.

Voted in by the JR/F team.

A bio will help facilitate their addition.
