Drum Method

CD (Item 626552) Columbia (Japan), 1972 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.70 5

The drum method here is pretty darn funky – as Akira Ishikawa works with backing from a groovy big band – all at a level that's somewhere between funky MPS and some of the jazz rock coming out of the US at the time! The tunes are all instrumental, but borrow plenty of songs from American charts – reworked by Ishikawa and the ensemble into some sweet funky numbers that build up heavily from the bottom – and feature some great breakout solos too! Lots of keyboards and guitars, along with the horns and drums – and titles include "Black Night", "America", "25 Or 6 To 4", "Let It Be", "Come Together", "Spinning Wheel", "Lowdown", and "Questions 67 & 68".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Brilliant work throughout – the last studio album ever cut by Lee Morgan, and a mindblowing session that always leaves us wondering how massive he would have become if he hadn't been tragically murdered shortly after it was recorded! The album's a huge change from Morgan's already-great work ... CD

Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy
Nothing too silent here, as the set's filled with the kind of soulful fusion grooves we'd expect from Hubert Laws in the 70s! The album's a real standout in his Columbia catalog – a perfectly balanced set that features plenty of great work from Hubert on flute, amidst arrangements that also ... CD

Columbia/P-Vine (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A killer funky group from early 70s Japan – a slightly large ensemble, but one with some really heavy drums at the bottom – plus some great use of organ and electric guitar! There's a tight brace of horns at the top – flute, tenor, trumpets, and trombone – but the rhythms ... CD

Och Den Stora Fragan
Moserobie (Sweden), 2014. New Copy
Bold, beautiful work from one of our favorite contemporary bassists – a player with a great ear for his own instrument, and for its larger place in music as well! Torbjorn Zetterburg really hits things hard with this great set – writing, arranging, and producing a set of material that ... CD

Lat Det Vara
Moserobie (Sweden), 2013. New Copy
An incredible step forward for reedman Jonas Kullhammar – an album that's put together as a summation of his feelings after taking a brief break from the recording business – but which also stands as one of his greatest moments to date! We've always loved Jonas' music, but there's a ... CD
