Satori Shiraishi. This name may not be very popular outside of Japan, but I want you to know that he is the most talented young producer in today's J-Pop scene. He is famous as the producer of the band "Orange Range" that has sold over 10 million CD copies.

He loves American music and understands it very deeply which always impressed me. He is young but is like the producers in the golden era of music.

This album "Happydom" stands as his first solo album and the recordings were completed in New York, LA and Honolulu. It is just phenomenal music that he created with the most significant musicians in each category of instruments.

At that time, he made a documentary DVD of the recording sessions included in the CD album. Unfortunately, this album was released only in Japan and obviously, he was explaining his experiences in Japanese.

I always thought the video was a great one to share with people who loved music and who really wanted to see some real recordings with great musicians in professional recording studios.

Under Satori's generous authorization, I have inserted English sub-titles for the video and placed it on this page. So now you can share the amazing moments with us. And simply put, this video captures our recording session very well.

Please enjoy.
