George Otsuka Trio - Last Summer (Page 3)

Year : 1969
Label : Nippon Columbia
Serie : Takt Jazz Series
Genre : Jazz
Style : Post Bop, Hard Bop, Jazz Rock

Final Page for George Otsuka under the Takt Jazz series before he left Nippon Columbia to the new japanese jazz label TBM. This is also the last album for this formation featuring Hideo Ichikawa & Masaoki Terakawa who introduce here, for the first time, electric materials for bass & piano (George uses organ),  bringing them a touch of Jazz Rock style. This album concluded brilliantly the trilogy, including the Jazz standards Things We Did Last Summer & Over The Rainbow, and three originals songs composed by Hideo Ichikawa among others the two Jazz Rock tunes Sea View & Breeze Brook And Birds. All tracks arranged by Hideo Ichikawa & George Otsuka.
