“Light’n Up” is Minako Yoshida’s 9th studio album in 1982. Yoshida recorded the basic tracks in Tokyo with her regular band with the addition of Hiroshi Sato on keyboard. A section of the album was also recorded in New York with the Brecker Brothers and David Sanborn.
The album is hailed as a “light mellow” classic of city pop, which is defined as medium tempo urban Japanese soul/R&B, and was re-vitalized by club DJs in the late 90’s.
