Bizarre, little known and very private Jazz LP from enigmatic Arnett The Artist on US label Okamoto Records, that seemingly managed to dispense only this release before folding.  The A-side is pretty mellow and straight jazz, noodling guitar licks and little gusts of tenor sax, with 'Stella By Starlight' taking things a little more upbeat.  B-side again not loadsssss going on (really selling this one!!), a schmooching cover of Rose Royce's 'Love Don't Live Here Anymore' which I actually quite like, but the real pay off comes at the very end with 'Pamela Candy Comez' - a searching, moody piece grounded by a rising sustained synth note and super high bass riff amidst a medley of keys and guitar riffage.  Feels like the sort of magic where they didn't have enough proper songs for a full record so just stuck a loose jam on the end, which inevitably is the best bit..  (NM/NM).
