Product Description

Crystal Records was a short lived record label that operated between 1934 to 1936. However, it had a big influence on the Japanese music scene, mainly as the breeding ground for Ryoichi Hattori (1907-1993). Hattori composed some of Japan's most famous jazz and pop songs, helping to create a jazz boom following the war. Crystal was the first label Hattori's songs found an outlet for, where he would write jazz, Latin and pop tunes for a variety of singers.
