Title: Cool JoJo
Format: CD
Label: Three Blind Mice
Country: Japan
Price: $33.00
"Third volume in a series of Takayanagi reissues on this Japanese jazz label. As with the prior Free Form Suite, this features super deluxe hardbound book-like packaging and "extended resolution CD" sound. First reissue of this obscure album, originally recorded in Dec. of 1979; with four bonus alternate takes issued for the first time. Takayanagi (guitar), Kenji Kohsei (piano, electric piano), Nobuyoshi Ino (bass), Yasuhiro Yamazaki (drums). A "cool jazz" recording in the Tristano tradition, All improv sax/drums duo action. cannot sketch well is nonsense. Its the same thing in jazz. I find no value in the free jazz of a musician that doesnt swing in 4 beat and plays a dreary in-code ad lib. Avant-garde music or Free Form does not exist without a respect for the classic, and thus, it turned out to be a special album reflecting Jojos sincerity." -- Takeshi "Tee" Fuji, producer." - Three Blind Mice.
