Ohayashi Jazz - Otogibanashi

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.

CICALA MVTA

Non e Muta. 20th Anniversary Anthology (2 CDs)

Ref: FSD6752


Price: 23.99


2 CD set to celebrate 20 years since the extraordinary Cicala Mvta released their first album. The name 'Cicala Mvta' (pronounced Shikala Moota, Italian for a mute cicada) is a tribute to Soeda Azembo, the greatest street singer and songwriter of popular music in Japan, who was reduced to silence by the authorities after the 1920s. Led by clarinetist Wataru Ohkuma, one of the most innovative musicians in Japan today, Cicala Mvta are heirs to Soeda Azembo and have taken over the fight against the Japanese establishment. They develop music drawn from from chindon (street advertising music, the commercial medium before the advent of TV) and it's predecessor, Jinta (original Japanese brass band music, a form for anti-establishment expression). A mixture of old and new, east and west their music borrows openly from Klezmer, Turkish, Nepalese and Balkan music, progressive rock, punk, free jazz and folk to create it's own world. The band members over the years have included several of Japan's most innovative including Hiromichi Sakamoto (cello, Shibusashirazu, Pascals, Otomo Yoshihide), Yoshiki Sakurai (guitar, Lonesome Strings), Masahiro Uemura (drums, Otomo Yoshihide), Tatsuda Yoshida (drums, Ruins) Takero Sekijima (tuba, Kuricorder Quartet), Gideon Juckes (tuba, Bellowhead, Shibusashirazu).

Press on Cicala Mvta

"This is music from out there, as if trying to be - simultaneously - a Nepalese wedding band, a Japanese chindon combo (think of John Coltrane as town crier) and a kabuki orchestra. It defies categorization." Time Out, London

"An outrageous punk-meets-brass-band rave-up that even Romanian gypsies would be left scratching their heads at. Highly recommended" Mojo, UK

Wasabi are a quartet of four young traditional musicians, who aim to grow the appeal of Japanese traditional music overseas and with young people in Japan. Shamisen player, Ryoichiro Yoshida has already successfully been doing this as one half of the Yoshida Brothers, and Wasabi is a kind of extension of the duo, adding other traditional instruments, and playing traditional songs in an exciting way, while creating an image as a band that goes against the stuffy traditional music world. The tsugaru shamisen and taiko drums are from the 'folk' world, whereas koto and shakuhachi are mostly from the classical world. They have already performed in several countries around the world to great acclaim. Ryoichiro Yoshida (shamisen), Hiromu Motonaga (shakuhachi), Shin Ichikawa (koto), Naosaburo Bihou (taiko)

Recorded at Kodo Village, this new studio recording compliments the stage production 'Kodo One Earth Tour: Mystery' directed by Kabuki legend Tamasaburo Bando. The seeds for this album and production were planted in 2003, when Kodo asked Tamasaburo Bando to direct one their shows. In 2012, Bando was appointed Kodo's artistic director. There is less (although still plenty) of the trademark energetic beating of drums, and a more subtle, greater variety of sounds, rhythms and styles.

Underground Railroad

SOUL FLOWER UNION

Underground Railroad

Ref: FSD6605


Price: 23.99

New album and first for four years from Kansai's finest Soul Flower Union. Sticks fairly close to the tried and tested SFU formula of big production upbeat celtic tinged rock with political lyrics, apart from a couple of diversions into dub and a slightly stripped down sound. Lead vocalist Takashi Nakagawa also plays a bit of sanshin and bouzouki along with his electric guitar, to a basic bass, drums, keyboards accompaniment, with about 20 musicians adding more guitars, mandolin, electric sitar, banjo, clarinet, fiddle, trumpet, trombone, sax (latter three all from the excellent Black Bottom Brass Band) and just about the kitchen sink to create the swirling wall of sound that is Soul Flower Union. Overall, another gem to add to their already acclaimed discography. Comes with English translations of the lyrics.

1. Ground Zero 2. Fukyo Bangaichi (Savage Wilderness Eccentrics) 3. Chika-Tetsudo no Shonen (A Boy on the Underground Railroad) 4. Zankyo no Yokocho (The Reverberation Lane) 5. Sweet Wind of Marmalade 6. Mosareta Shisyu (The Burned Collection of Poems) 7. Upsetting Rhythm 8. Bacteria Rock 9. Fuku wa Uchi, Oni mo Uchi (In With Good Fortune, In With the Evils Too) 10. Marebito Kozorite (All the Strangers Gather) 11. Is This What Freedom is All About? 12. All You Need is Written on Your Body 13. Let's Dance! Don't Let Them Dance Us! 14. Sekai wa Omae wo Matteiru (The World is Still Waiting For You)
