This sense of speed, this sense of elation. Takeshi Inomata, a man who knows no dead ends, pushes the limits of groove with his ever-changing stick work. This is another masterpiece from the golden age of jazz-rock by Takeshi Inomata, a master drummer who has always looked ahead to the times and opened up new horizons.
Although this is an instructional record produced as part of the "Method" series, the musicianship is fiercely funky and groovy, as if to provoke the listener. This is the first time I've ever heard of such an album.
The band's diverse selection of songs, from covers such as "Runaway Child" and "Smack Water Jack," to their ally Norio Maeda's "Sleeper" and "Seven Four," both of which they also arranged, and their overwhelmingly powerful drum solo "Drum Concert," are filled with a seamless, dense groove.
