Ref: FSD6830


Price: 20.99

Utsumi Eika and Munekiyo Hiroshi & Sui-i-test Sound was formed as an experimental project in Osaka in 2005. The idea, as the album title suggests, was to mix jazz with ohayashi (musical accompaniment for traditional performing arts such as noh). Four musicians from the ohayashi side led by Utsumi (shamisen, taiko, fue (flute), vocals) and four from the jazz side under Munekiyo (trombone, bass, piano, drums) have recorded their first album after ten years of playing together. Trombone plays Japanese traditional tunes and shamisen plays George Gershwin. It's quite a mix; interesting, entertaining, suprising, invigorating. Take a look at the album sampler.

Hiroshi Munekiyo- trombone, Eika Utsumi - shamisen, vocal, trombone, Masakazu Sawa- durms, Shimeta Katsura - taiko, Toshiya Kasamatsu - bass, Kyojyaku Syofukutei- fue, Hiroko Ishida - piano, Akashi Katsura- natimono.

Ref: FSD4871


Price: 21.99

Yoshiyuki Kawaguchi is a wind instrument player. Among the many groups he has played with, are Shibusashirazu, for whom he plays sax, and Kuricorder Quarter, when he plays recorder. On this album, Kawaguchi and his band mates from each group play the music of the other group. A bit of a bizzare idea, but these kinds of musicians are full of wonderful and weird ideas.
