During the Taisho period (1912-1926) more western music was introduced to Japan than ever before. There was a general feeling of freedom with a shift of power to the democratically elected Diet of Japan which found expression in the music scene. Japanese music was mixed with western music creating a new style around which various music movements were created. The Taisho period might have been short but its influence had reverberations that would be felt for many decades. Artists include Rintaro Shoji, Hachiro Kasuga, Toshie Kusunoki, Kazuo Kumakura, Utako Matsushima, Hiroshi Mifune, Michiya Mihashi, Kenichi Enomoto, Ichiro Wakahara, Ichiro Mayama, Shinji Maki, Bonnie Jacks, Chieko Baisho. Originally released on LP in 1968.
