Info for Jazz Songs, Vol. 1
Shima Yusuke plays trumpet and flugelhorn in a cool jazz Chet Baker style, but Shikou's keyboard skills are much more rambunctious and ranging. There is no doubting that he is the star of the show. The basis for his music is modern jazz, and his solos change wonderfully with rapid jumps in texture and style, while still always keeping the song in mind and never losing a Fujirock crowd, that -- let's face it -- could be prone to nap if the music goes either too esoteric or too predictable.
