This cannot be a comprehensive listing of recordings by Japanese artists, but rather is a list of
recordings collected and/or consulted for this study. I have also included several entries
to which I have not yet had an opportunity to listen, but which are generally regarded as
important or are cited in the text. Historical significance, availability, financial resources, and
personal taste influenced my decisions in building this collection. Whenever possible, I have
included both original issue numbers and most recent reissue numbers. Each artist’s works
are listed chronologically by recording date.
