MIHO KEI & JAZZ ELEVEN - KOKEZARU KUMIKYOKU SUITE

























Miho Kei & Jazz Eleven for MCA/Nippon Victor Japan from 1971.

Takeru Muraoka: soprano saxophone, tenor saxophone, Indian flute ;Masahiko Sato: electric piano, harpsichord ;Takehisa Suzuki: trumpet ;Takeshi Inomata: drums ;Akira Ishikawa: drums ;Ryo Kawasaki: electric guitar ;Yasuo Arakawa: electric bass ;Minoru Muraoka: shakuhachi ;Suma no Arashi Hideaki Kusumoto and Kazuo Kojima: koto ;Kikutada Katada: tsuzumi ;Mutsumi Masuda: vocal
All compositions and arrangements by Keitaro Miho

An obscure jazz psych rarity from 1971 Japan with a heavyweight line up of the finest musicians who would go on to shape the country's jazz scene during the the 70's and beyond. Soundtrack composer Keitaro Miho (who doesn't actually play on the project) put together this sophisticated cocktail of jazz and radical psychedelia with traditional Japanese instruments , avant-garde vocal sketches and film music.Very highly recommended.

The finest in Japanese Jazz....

I really dig it. Love the bluesy track Kine, the flute, the electric piano, everything is there. Where can I find this album?

Bacoso said...

boogieman: I wish you luck finding a vinyl copy I've never found or even heard of one for sale.This rip is from the Bridge(Japan)Reissue CD which is OOP and a tough one to track down.
