Yuji Ohno

Yuji Ohno — 大野雄二 (May 30, 1941) — is a Japanese jazz pianist who played on albums by Kimiko Kasai and Terumasa Hino during the early 1970s. In 1974, Ohno collaborated with Brazilian samba-jazz vocalist Sônia Rosa on the CBS/Sony release Spiced With Brazil. The following year, he partook in the Columbia Records jazz-funk one-off Electro Keyboard Orchestra alongside fellow pianists Hiromasa Suzuki and Masahiko Sato. Between 1975 and 1985, Ohno released a slew of jazz-rock solo albums and anime soundtracks on Canyon, RCA, Invitation, Vap, and other labels.
