KAZUTOKI UMEZU "BAMBOO VILLAGE" (WHAT NEXT , 1980)


Another Trio from Japan. Quite different in its attitude.
I was a bit surprised to hear David Friesen in such a musical enviroment.
More probably than not I'm only biased.

Great ! Thank you very much for this rare lp ! I love Umezu music & his different projects. I've an almost dedicated blog to him, called "Big in Japan" (http://lostandoutofprint.blogspot.com/).
And, perhaps have you somewhere this other fine lp "The Masterpiece" by Toyozumi Yoshisaburo Unit with Kazutoki !?
All the best,Z.

It was on 8th June 1984 in Moers.

Thanks! The quieter, atmospheric improvs on this LP are really wonderful; the more free jazz bits are great too!

Chris
