Yoshiaki Masuo - 24

Year : 1970
Label : CBS/Sony
Genre : Jazz
Style : Jazz Rock, Psychedelic, Free Improvisations
Website : Ymasuo.com

The essential masterpiece of Yoshiaki Masuo is a Progressive Jazz album characterized by an eclectic style from Jazz Rock to the Rhythm & Blues with some Free improvisations & Psychedelic sounds. The whole of the album is brilliant, the Woodstock generation's legacy, just as the influence of the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew album, hangs over here and there, in particular on Round Trip : Coming (a composition of Sadao), a kind of a synthesis of the Rock 'N' Roll spirit. The rest of the album include some others pearls as Uptight, the Pop-Folk song Shirley or the Blues Rock, Dirty Mashy Toe. As on Winds Of Barcelona, Yoshio Suzuki is still part of the rhythm section to which were added : Hideo Ichikawa, Motohiko Hino & Hiro Tsunoda, Sadao Watanabe, as a guest musician, meanwhile contributes to the beat of Corvallis by percussions (and also flute). All tracks arranged written by Yoshiaki Masuo.
