Jiro Inagaki & His Soul Media, Tokyo Cuban Boys - Quad Dimension/Rock'N Latin

Year : 1971
Label : Nippon Columbia
Serie : Master Sonic
Genre : Jazz, Latin Jazz
Style : Jazz Rock, Pop, Latin Rock

An umpteenth recording session performed by Jiro inagaki & His Soul Media, released in 1971, arranged by Jazz producer Takeo Ogawa, and backed by the most famous japanese Latin Big Band, the Tokyo Cuban Boys, formed in 1949 and conducted by Tadaaki Misago (they released over 200 albums between 1949 and 1980). Although less interesting than the Head Rock album, Quad Dimension/Rock'N Latin leaves however its mark by its originality and remains a well-made Jazz Rock fusion album including latin breaks, pop rhythms & some psychedelic mood. Titles include a variety of international Pop songs having had a great success in Japan (from The Beatles, Blood, Sweet And Tears to Fleetwood Mac & The Creedence), and also jazz standards as the Watermelon Man by Herbie Hancock. All tracks arranged by Takeo Ogawa.
