Prayer", "Dawn", "Hunt", and "Love" depicted with beautiful and stimulating sounds. Akira Ishikawa runs through the land of Africa with both jazz and rock.
The three pillars of Akira Ishikawa's musicality, jazz, rock, and African music, are fused together in a supreme balance in this masterpiece of thrilling songs one after another.
The stern "Prayer," reminiscent of the eternal earth, the clear and psychedelic "Dawn," the serene and beautiful "Love," the dynamic and explosive "Jumbo," and so on.
The arrangement by Hiromasa Suzuki is nothing short of brilliant, and the simple yet profound sound clarifies the concept and image of the album.
This is one of Ishikawa's more serious works (not instrumental covers), along with "Electrum," "Baximba," and "Uganda," and should be counted as one of his masterpieces.
