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.

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

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
