Catalog no.: MRBLP0000204

Item ID: 492014

They say you can't judge a book by its cover, and going by 'Jazz Rock', nor a record by its title. Though entering into jazz territory and featuring some distorted guitar, 'Jazz Rock' is more a beautiful marriage of funky breakbeat drumming and spiritual jazz instrumentation, combined with traditional Min'yo music performed on the koto and shakuhachi. Originally released in 1973, the record sounds simultaneously vintage
and contemporary. It is akin to something Madlib might dream up whilst lost in Japan collaborating with Min'yo players at a recording session. The record features some amazing shakuhachi (bamboo flute) playing by Hozan Yamamoto, which gives the music a haunting, dreamlike atmosphere. You can almost visualise the long grass blowing in the wind, and hear the bamboo rustling in the distance on a long hot summer's day. Takeshi Inomata, Tadao Sawai and Kazue Sawai anchor the session. Takeshi's exceptionally funky-drum work will almost certainly get some producers dusting off and firing up their MPC's. Whilst Kazue and Tadao work their magic on the koto (a traditional string instrument). Also features Sadanori Nakamure on guitar and Tatsuro Takimoto on bass.

Also available: JAZZ ROCK (CD).
