"Kanto" is a 2015 album of a Japanese male jazz pianist, Onozuka Akira. That was his third solo album released in celebration of the 30th anniversary of his career.
First of all, let me tell you who Onozuka Akira is. He was originally a jazz pianist who belonged to no bands. You can hear his then plays on the albums of some popular music groups like B'z and Tube.
In 1992, he joined a Japanese jazz / fusion band "DIMENSION." From the time on, DIMENSION has always included Onozuka Akira. In his private time, he is said to be pretty fond of mother nature. He often goes camping away from large cities that he usually plays in.
Onozuka loves nature so much. Then, his solo albums always include his longing for them. Kanto means the sky in Ainu languages.
You can feel like being in the large sky blue, by listening to the songs, although those are jazz ones.
