KOHSUKE MINE QUINTET - DAGURI



















Kohsuke Mine Quintet for Victor Japan from 1973.

Kohsuke Mine - Tenor & Alto Sax ; Hideo Miyata - Tenor Sax ; Fumio Itabashi - Piano ; Hideaki Mochizuki - Bass ; Hiroshi Murakami - Drums.

An absolute monster of a session from Kohsuke Mine and his quintet who are on fire from the furious opener "Thirsty" through to the closing modal whirlwind "Spin Drift".Although all 5 cuts are penned by K.Mine "Expectation" has echoes of  what Itabashi was to record some years later as "Watarase".
The very finest in Japanese jazz and without a shadow of a doubt.....
All Killer No Filler.

Hou Yeahhhhhhhh!

I knew "Mine" known as the first lp from TBM label, and featuring Hideo Ichikawa on rhodes.

But indeed Thirsty is a killer! And I also like the cool "Self-Contradiction"

Thanks for this discovery, again !
