Reviews: Yoshio Suzuki: Friends
|Review by vsoft January 6, 2011
|Kohsuke Mine soprano & tenor sax
Takehiro Honda piano
Yoshio Suzuki bass
Hiroshi Murakami drums
Hideo Miyata flute on Samba De Chico (the last piece)
All compositions by Yoshio Suzuki.
Recorded in 1973.
Booklet in Japanese.
Unlike the newer work by Y.Suzuki (Yoshio Suzuki: Moon and Breeze), this is a real hot be-bop performed with great emotional involvement of all musicians. Comparisons to John Coltrane and McCoy Tyner came to my mind first.
Sound is pretty good and realistic, all instruments are located at reasonable positions.
