Japanese superstar Seiko Matsuda is sometimes referred to as “the ‘Madonna’ of Japan.” Like Madonna, Seiko rose to superstardom as a teenager. And today—more than 75 albums later—she remains a household name there.

After the success of Seiko Jazz (1), Seiko reached out to Quincy Jones who referred her to Merv to arrange and produce Seiko Jazz 2, which became yet another hit for the superstar.

As a bonus, Merv duets with Seiko on the classic “The Way You Look Tonight.”
