JOE HENDERSON AND KIKUCHI,HINO IN CONCERT




















Joe Henderson for Fontana Japan from 1971.
Joe Henderson - tenor saxophone Terumasa Hino - trumpet Kousuke Mine - alto and soprano saxophones Masabumi Kikuchi - piano, electric piano Yoshio Suzuki - bass Hiroshi Murakami & Yoshiyuki Nakamura - drums


Recorded at the Tokyo Toshi Center Hall, Tokyo, Japan, on August 5, 1971, this live set features Henderson with an incredible line up of Japanese young lions.The session took place the day after Henderson's appearance at the Junk Club, Tokyo, for the recording of 'Joe Henderson In Japan' on the Milestone label and is something of a different beast.
"Sunrise In Tokyo" kicks us off with a terrific head and solos from the three major protagonists while "So What" is taken at a rapid tempo and again showcases the big three from the lp title."Get Magic Again" is a more abstract piece moving into New Thing territory with great piano from Kikuchi who penned the title.

Thanks a lot Bacoso, nice line-up and judging by "Live In Japan", Joe was killin' during that tour (but then again, he always was). Cheers!

This sounds great - a fine example of "J-jazz" meets an American giant. Thank you!

I just saw another one my my favorite blogs get shut down, "derek's daily 45s". I'm assuming that he was caught of guard because there was no mention of him quitting it yesterday. I'd hate to see that happen here!!! Any thoughts on making this blog private?

ryanb said...

HA! of course right after I post that, his blog is back up!

Bacoso said...

ryanb - this blog will not be going private.

taro nombei said...

as your JP slogan, I think you would do better with:
全キラー無フィラー
just a suggestion ;-)

Bacoso said...

tn:thanks I thought the last slogan wasn't quite right!

Andy said...

Looking forward to this. "Joe in Japan" was my first exposure to the high quality of Japanese jazz, so this is going to be a special treat.
