There are great piano and tenor sax solos and any musician would appreciate the Big Band music and the Japanese-oriented pieces. Blending Eastern and Western music is an awesome feat - they are sooo different - but she does it well. There is just enough of the familiar and enough of the strikingly new to make for a good balance. Great stuff!
Great selection of music. These are impressive and talented musical artist. This CD is a must have for any music lover.
This album is good. I wish all the original albums from which this one was complied were available on CD.
If you get this CD for no other reason, take a listen to Road Time Shuffle, which was the title track of a another album by the same band. Road Time is a fantastic chart that was played amazingly well and recorded live. This is probably the best recorded live jazz performance I've ever heard. This band was on fire, with some of the best jazz talent at that time in the band.
I don't understand why Toshiko and this band haven't gotten more attention. Take a listen and tell me if I'm wrong.
