It only works (perfectly, anyway) if you use a hard "J" and an English-sounding final "n." But if you really pronounced it the way most Americans would, it wouldn't sound like "John Dark." It would sound more like "Gene Dee-Ark." I think if you pronounce it the proper French way, it's pretty close. Close enough to get the pun. : )

.. maybe if you can transcribe from the original Japanese...?


my hunch is "Winbreakers" may be referencing some Japanese myth or spirit,
and by extension a possible pun regarding the brass section of the band...

All very innocuous in Japanese,
but lethal in the hands of a mischeivous international record label translator.

Genie, maybe the reference of "Windbreakers" is to the light, wind-tight sports jacket of that name.

Another possibility is a reference to the bicyclist who takes his turn at the front of the pack, so others can draft.

Neither of which is as funny as what we all thought.

"Norio Maeda was born in Osaka, Japan, in 1934. Highly esteemed not only as a pianist but also as a brilliant arranger.
He was garnered the "Award for Best Arrangement" at The Tokyo Music Festival in 1981, the "Award for Best Arrangement" at The Japan Record Awards in 1983, and "Fumio Nanri Awards", the highest award in the world of Jazz hosted by Swing Journal Magazines.
..he formed "The Windbreakers" with greatest pianists in Japan, and "Triple Piano" with Masahiko Sato and Kentaro Haneda in 1988.He is an acclaimed pianist as well as composer/arranger, a representative figure of Japan, widely accepted from all quarters. He celebrates his 24th anniversary for his own group, "The Windbreakers"


.. well no accounting for Japanese sense of humour,
But Mr Maeda would seem to be a serious musician of some cultural significance..

Hmm.. from a Western point of equivalence..

Two really bad translations that have led to suffering for hundreds of years

Greek 'Harmartia' a term derived from archery. To miss the mark, translated in the King James Bible as 'Sin'.   Of course we all miss the mark, to say that we are all sinners has far more baleful connotations.

Greek. Metanoia....to see as new, to have clearer view ( so that it is easier to hit the mark) again, in KJB, translated as 'repentance'. So instead of acquiring wisdom ( clearer sight) he have donned sackcloth and ashes, or worse.
Unspeakable.
