Much championed by Giles Peterson, on his BBC Worldwide programme, Soil & "Pimp" Sessions is an explosive jazz band of six musicians; Shacho (agitator, spirit), Tabuzombi (trumpet), Motoharu (sax), Josei (piano), Akita Goldman (bass) and Midoryn (drums). At its core, the group is about giving pulsating live performances. Soil and "Pimp" Sessions combine the highest musicianship with the coolest of cool sounds and atmosphere. Their brand of jazz is rough around the edges, unadulterated entertainment and constantly kept at boiling point. In 2003 they had no commercial recordings available, yet that year on reputation alone were invited to perform at Japan's premier festival, Fuji Rock. It was a defining moment, lapped up by those lucky enough to witness it, hugely praised and one of the major talking points of the entire festival. The group defies boundaries and genres, attracting listeners of jazz, club and rock. Pimp Master is their their first full album.
