I saw Kappo's electric jazz band a couple of years ago and they were phenomenal, but I still prefer the earlier acoustic bands.

thanks for this Umezu; he is a fantastic player, I've really discovered him with his Klezmer group and later with the Kiki band (an extraordinary guitarist Kido Natsuki).

very good one! i also prefer Kappo's early projects much more than those which with he provides more experimental and eclectic stuff,
thanks much, Nick!

Great stuff!
I first came to this Umezu circle thru their record with Mal Waldron (you're maybe laughing). It's really good to hear them in their element!!! Am I the only one hearing Vandermark throughout this, FIFTEEN F*CKING YEARS BEFORE VANDERMARK!?!?!?!?! :-DDD He pretty much admits to being a parade of influences, but...
As a side note, I came upon this in searching for a drummer "Kikuchi Koji." But, the picture I have actually resembles Ken Terui more than this Takashi, so...
Anyway, thanks!
