ELVIN JONES . MASABUMI KIKUCHI - HOLLOW OUT
Masabumi Kikuchi for Philips Japan from 1972.
Masabumi Kikuchi -Piano 、Gene Perla-Bass、Elvin Jones-Drums.
Engineered by Rudy Van Gelder.
Another first in blogland here at Orgy In Rhythm with this very rare trio outing from Masabumi Kikuchi and Elvin Jones.
This has been something of a holy grail for me having chased after it for years and never managing to secure a copy.Now thanks to an expensive cross cultural exchange it now sits in my collection at home.
At the time of recording Kikuchi was pianist for the Elvin Jones Group which also featured Gene Perla on bass and the three took the time out from touring to record this at Van Gelder Studios New Jersey .
I know little else about this album so better to leave the wonderful music to speak for itself.
Ripped @320 from the 1996 Japanese cd reissue.
My thanks to Jazz-neko for his efforts in sourcing this cd for me-cheers,my friend.
