GEORGE OTSUKA QUINTET - SEA BREEZE

description

George Otsuka (or Ohtsuka), sadly passed away in March 2020, was one of
Japan's most renowned jazz drummers. 'Sea Breeze', released in 1971 on
the Union label, is his first record in quintet formation and is reissued here
on a single LP housed in a gatefold sleeve.
And we can say that George Otsuka knew how to surround himself: Shunzo
Ohno is on trumpet and Flugelhorn, Takao Uematsu on tenor sax and soprano,
Takashi Mizuhashi on bass and Hideo Ichikawa on electric piano.
If all the tracks on this album are solid, included the astonishing cover of "Fool
on the Hill", it is especially "Sea Breeze", the eponymous track opening the album
that will make an impression. A super and long jazz-funk track where the
five musicians, in perfect osmosis, leave each other enough space to express
the full extent of their talent.
Recent copies of the original vinyl, which were only released in Japan have sold
for £200-300.
