Discography
The discography strangely omits a few of Takayanagi's freeform albums in favour of straighter material. Amongst the more important are:
1. Gradually Projection, Mass Projection (both live duos with Kaoru Abe from 1970, DIW)
2. Complete La Grima (the full set from the 1971 Genyasai festival, Doubtmusic)
3. April is the cruellest month (1975 set originally scheduled for release on ESP Disk, recently reissued by Jinya)

WALTZ STEP / UP AND DOWN
WALTZ STEP / UP AND DOWN is not the title of a Takayanagi album. Rather these are the titles of two tracks on Masahiko Togashi's Improvisation Jazz Orchestra "Follow the dream" LP.
The album which is probably meant is "850113" by Takayanagi's Angry Waves trio. This was the only release of his that appeared on the Aketa's Disk label and it was indeed released in 1985.
