kazu matsui project feat. robben ford – standing on the outside

This was posted on the Jazzistas page at Facebook and it resonated with me, because the lyrics capture perfectly the feeling of rejection and knocking on the door of someone’s heart – and the door not being opened to you.

Kazu Matsui is a famous Japanese bamboo flute player, and in 1981 began performing West Coast jazz as the “Project”. This track is from the “Love’s a Heartache” album (1983), also called the “Robben Ford album” because of the collaboration of KMP with the silken-voiced vocalist.

Tracks on the album: Standing On The Outside, Time Flies, Save Your Nights For Me, Me On The One Side, Wheels Of Love, Tell That Girl, Illusions, Sunset Memory, Love’s A Heartache, and Sun Lake.
