NAOSUKE MIYAMOTO SEXTET - STEP!




















 Naosuke Miyamoto Sextet for Three Blind Mice Japan from 1973.

Kunji Shigi - trumpet & fluegelhorn; Takashi Furya - alto sax; Takeshi Goto - soprano sax & tenor sax; Masayoshi Yoneda - piano; Naosuke Miyamoto - bass; Shoji Nakayama  drums

Those of you with long memories may remember a comp I put together and posted here back in 2006 entitled "The Mood Is Modal" which opened with Naosuke Miyamoto's sublime modal masterpiece "One For Trane".Now and only 5 years later(!!!) here's the whole lp for the first time in blogland and it's a bomb.
Miyamoto had been recording since 1960 with the likes of Sadao Watanabe and George Kawaguchi (more from him in a future post) and was something of an old pro when he assembled this sextet using players from both the new generation of young lions and more established musicians.Two Harold Land compositions (check the storming version of "Step Right Up To The Bottom" ) and three originals from Goto,Yoneda and Miyamoto make up the writing credits and it's on "One For Trane" & "Where Do They Go?" the influence of the Coltrane/Shorter modal school is at it's best.
Fiery and beautiful music throughout this really is ....
All Killer No Filler!

Really loving this one. I hear a lot of Billy Harper in Goto's tenor. I know Harper was in Japan, but I don't think it was early as '73. (Probably just an overactive imagination on my part.) This passionate music will lead to plenty of daydreaming. Thanks.

GregP said...

wow, what a FANTASIC record! I'd never heard of Naosuke before but picked up this off your blog because I've found some great stuff here in the past and thought it was worth a go. I can honestly say this is not only my record of the year (2011) so far, but is probably better than anything I heard in 2010 too!

Thank you SO much!
