Teru Sakamoto Trio Live At Rikuzen Johnny (Japanese paper sleeve edition)

CD (Item 605084) Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1980 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 5

A tremendous live set from pianist Teru Sakamoto – a session that soars with all of the life, soul, and imagination of McCoy Tyner at his 70s best! The record's got a feel that's quite open – long tracks, with plenty of solo space for Sakamoto on the piano – but the sound is always inside, rhythmic, and focused – never too out or too experimental, just soaring up to the skies with a brilliant sense of expression. The trio features Takao Neichi on bass and Takeshi Watanabe on drums – and titles include a great modal take on "My Favorite Things", plus "Left Alone", "Yuyake Koyake", and "Autumn Leaves".

Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy
An excellent swinging Bethlehem session from the mid 50s – one that's recorded in LA, but with a sound that's way hotter than most of the label's other west coast sides! The group's extremely tight – and features Marty Paich on piano as the leader, next to great trombone from Herbie ... CD

Jazz City Presents
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy
One of the more loosely-constructed sides on the Bethlehem label – an imprint that's normally known for keeping the reigns in pretty tightly! The album features 3 longish tracks played by 3 different groups: "I'm Glad There Is You", played by a group led by Russ Garcia, and ... CD

New Kind Of Soul
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy
A really killer set from pianist Larry Willis – way different than any of his later albums as a leader, and from his early work with Jackie McLean in the 60s! Larry's playing here with a sound that's as righteous as his image on the cover, but which is also pretty funky at points too – ... CD

One of the greatest trumpeters on the European scene of the past few decades – heard here in a completely sublime setting! Dusko Goykovich has played in many styles and many ways, but hasn't ever done a date with full strings before – a long-overdue placement for his wonderful tone on ... CD

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

Modern Jazz
Teichiku/Think (Japan), 1960. New Copy
An early gem from Hidehiko "Sleepy" Matsumoto – easily one of the greatest players on the Japanese scene of the postwar years, and a tenorist who we might easily compare to the great Hank Mobley! This album's got the same sort of soulful subtlety of Mobley's classic Soul Station ... CD

Strata East/Think (Japan), 1973. New Copy Gatefold
A highly percussive little album – and the first-ever appearance of the M'Boom ensemble on record! You might know the group from their later fame under the guidance of Max Roach, but here the combo is a much more equally-assembled cast of players – featuring not just Roach, but ... CD

Moserobie (Sweden), 2013. New Copy
A brilliant meeting of Swedish jazz generations – the older tenor modernist Gilbert Holmstrom, working here with a crack quartet of the best players on the mighty Moserobie label!
