Kyoto Jazz Massive - Spirit of the Sun (2002) Retail CD
The Japanese Okino brothers have dithered around for several years while preparing Spirit of the Sun. DJ/producers and programmers Shuya and Yoshihiro have been busy mixing and remixing for the best part of a decade, collaborating with Mondo Grosso, UFO, Susumu Yokota and Jazzanova. The Okinos have been spinning vinyl in public for even longer, influenced as they were by the London scene in the late 1980s. It was Gilles Peterson who gave them their name, in an early Straight No Chaser feature. There's no doubt that running a magazine and the label and retail arms of Especial Records have alsomore… contributed to the delay. It begins with vocal numbers, and these tracks lay their commercial wares upfront with some soulfully abstract trilling from Vanessa Freeman, Maiya James and Victor Davies. Once these three numbers are over, it's the remaining instrumentals that have greater appeal, hung around some tightly sprung beats and decorated with Fender Rhodes spangles, soprano saxophone whorls and crystal-dusted trumpet samples. Most of the flashy solo action comes courtesy of keyboardist Hajime Yoshizawa, while Tomokazu Sugimoto's basslines remain flatulent throughout and most of the cuts are slinkily mixed by Beanfield's Jan Krause. --Martin Longley
