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.

Stellar stellar set by this great vibes player! Recorded with the same high quality as all the Ubiquity releases, and a loving tribute to a great player who hasn't had his due in many many years. At first, we thought "big deal, another Dave Pike record. It's new, and it's probably a lot ... CD
