Norio Maeda - Revolution

Year : 1972
Label : Nippon Columbia
Serie : Master Sonic
Genre : Jazz
Style : Soul Jazz, Experimental, Avant Garde

The meeting between the Avant Garde Jazz & the baroque music centered around the use of church organ (from Music Church). Norio Maeda was inspired by the work of Johann Sebastian Bach as has it could make, before him, the French composer & pianist Jacques Loussier in the sixties, with his famous 'Play Bach' series, marrying Jazz and classical music compositions. Also, as the title suggests, it's a experimental jazz project based on the repertoire from Johann Sebastian Bach where some sounds effects are used, bringing together some samples extracted from the Nature like the thunderstorm & other race car noises or from urban traffic. Titles include six interpretations from original Bach's compositions, Cool Drive & In A State Of Nature in the pure Soul Jazz style, Bossa Bossa Nova to the latin sounds and the final track, an experimental scat singing called Unchikipar performed by Maeda & his stooges. All tracks arranged and conducted by Norio Maeda.
