Suika, 2003, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Avant Garde
O’s Notes: This is the creative genius of trumpeter Natsuki Tamura. Takayuki Kato (g), Satoko Fujii (synthesizer) and Takaaki Masuko (d) join him. They take off on a daring and adventurous ride that intrigues the imagination. The music layers lots of cymbals, percussion, synthesizers and eerie sounds with melodies cutting across the mix. This is a fresh different cut on jazz-fusion from Japan.
