An overlooked masterpiece from Herbie Hancock’s electric jazz-funk years, Kimiko Kasai’s Butterfly is set to be given its first ever international reissue.

Recorded in Tokyo and released in 1979, it features a collection of Kasai’s silken reinterpretations, from Herbie Hancock’s own disco monster ‘I Thought It Was You’, and a butter smooth rework of ‘Sunlight’, to the sun-drenched ballad ‘Butterfly’, and a bubbling version of Stevie Wonder’s timeless ‘As’.
