Description (Japanese):
2016年、惜しくもこの世を去った北海道出身の名ピアニスト、福居良。
初期の2作品『シーナリィ』と『メロウ・ドリーム』が高く評価され、今やその名は世界のジャズ・リスナーが知るところとなった本作『A Letter From Slowboat』は2015年、実に16年ぶりに制作されたリーダー・アルバム。

録音は、福居も実力を認める有望なふたりの若手とともに、ホームであるライヴ・ハウス<スローボート>で行われた。

「Sonora」に滲む抒情、「Stella By Starlight」を包む詩情、「Speak Low」に溢れる躍動。タッチはより力強く、情感はより深く、香りはより豊潤に。

「昨日よりは今日、今日よりは明日、少しでも上手くなるように」。この思いを胸に40年間ピアノに打ち込んできた福居。

ここにはその40年間の集大成が鮮やかに記録されている。遺作であることの重みを除いても、純然たる名作である。
