The Toshiko Akiyoshi – Lew Tabackin Big Band was a 16 piece jazz big band created by pianist Toshiko Akiyoshi and tenor saxophone/flutist Lew Tabackin in Los Angeles in 1973. In 1982 the principals moved from Los Angeles to New York City and re-formed the group with new members under the name, The Toshiko Akiyoshi Jazz Orchestra featuring Lew Tabackin. Akiyoshi arranged all of the music for the band and composed nearly all of the music recorded by the two groups over a 30-year period.

Long Yellow Road is the second album by the Toshiko Akiyoshi – Lew Tabackin Big Band. In 1976, the album received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Jazz Performance by a Big Band. Long Yellow Road" is the title of two other albums by the Toshiko Akiyoshi Trio (1961) and the Toshiko Akiyoshi Quartet (1970). All music composed by Toshiko Akiyoshi except where noted. Toshiko Akiyoshi – piano. Lew Tabackin – tenor saxophone, flute, piccolo.

As a writer known for her incorporation of traditional Japanese music into idiomatic big band writing, it is only on the title track of this 1974 recording that this propensity is exhibited. The rest of the album is dedicated to more traditional big band approaches, but, in the hands of Toshiko Akiyoshi, "traditional" techniques always manage to sound fresh. Few of the many twists and turns on display in the five songs off of Kogun fail either to surprise or to work.

Producer – Hiroshi Isaka, Toshiko Akiyoshi. Tenor Saxophone – Lew Tabackin, Tom Peterson (2). Trombone – Britt Woodman, Charles Loper, Jim Sawyer. Trumpet – Bobby Shew, Don Rader, John Madrid, Mike Price. Voice – Scott Elsworth. Released with an insert.
