THE FREEDOM UNITY - DOWN BY THE NAKED CITY













The Freedom Unity for Victor Japan from 1970.
Takeshi Muraoka (ts,ss), Hiroshi Suzuki (tb), Hiromasa Suzuki (el p), Kunimitsu Inaba (b), Akira Ishikawa (ds)

An excellent obscure session from 1970 featuring a line up of soon to be stars of the Japanese jazz world.The group was pulled together by Hiromasa "Colgen" Suzuki for this one off project which was apparently influenced and inspired by the late 60s output of Miles Davis and his movements toward electric jazz.
"Down By The Naked City" is an extended piece by Suzuki in two parts ("The Doors Of Perception" & "The Dancing Protoplasm")while side 2 features three originals two by Suzuki and Takeshi Muraoka's grooving "The Equator".
Suzuki went on to record the ground breaking Rock Joints Biwa & Cither soon after this both of which have been recently reissued by Deep Jazz Reality Japan and are very highly recommended purchases.More info at Universounds.

Digging very deep here Bacoso...
Nice and mellow indeed, and as you say, the Equator grooves most nicely.
A brilliant share!
