T Square Discography

T Square

review:
Jepang emang ga ada matinya dalam fusion. kalo kemaren udah ada Casiopea dan Trix, Now, it’s T-Square time! T-Square udah punya karir lama, 30 tahunan hampir spt Casiopea. ga kurang dari puluhan album mereka rilis sejak 1976. Band ini dibentuk oleh Andoh dan dalam waktu singkat mereka mencapai popularitas di Jepang , Korea dan hampir seluruh asia. Pada awalnya band ini memakai nama The Square, kemudian berubah jadi T-Square supaya lebih komersil untuk merambah pasar Amrik. Dua anggota awal mereka, Kei Bando dan Hiroshi Kono udah mengundurkan diri dan kemudian digantikan oleh dua orang dari generasi lebih muda yang ga kalah keren. Personil terakhir mereka: Masahiro Andoh ?????? (guitar, producer and composer), Takeshi Itoh ????? (Sax, EWI & Flute),Keizoh Kawano ???? (keyboard), dan satoshi bandoh ??? (drums).

Ga tau kenapa band sekeren ini kurang gaungnya di Indonesia kalau dibandingkan dengan Casiopea.. padahal mereka ini ga kalah energik, ga kalah garang, dan ga kalah kualitas. So if you think you’re into Casiopea, really loves fusion, always prefer energic jazz-rock more than anything, atau yang mau nyobain (ga bakal rugi, karna biarpun fusion dan garang mereka ga susah buat dinikmati kok.. ), yuuu silakan disedot.. enjoy

Who Are T-Square:

WHO ARE T-SQUARE and where did the name come from?
The group used to go by the name “THE SQUARE” but recently has changed its name to T-SQUARE. Well, maybe not recently, but it happened in 1988 when the group first released its album and had a tour in the United States. The reason is rather simple:

1) In the United States, a band named “THE SQUARE” already existed before them.
2) For promotional reasons, they suddenly decided that “T-SQUARE” could mean the ever famous Times Square of the New York City.

Interestingly enough, during the “Yes, No” live tour after the New York live, Hirotaka Izumi (kb) specifically mentions that the group has “changed its group name to T-SQUARE and will be releasing all future albums under the name T-SQUARE.” He continued on to make a Japanese joke out of the new name “T-SQUARE.” It’s somewhat hard to understand in English, but here is the joke:

1) The change from THE SQUARE to T-SQUARE is not a significant change because the only difference is the “HE” from the word “THE” (etymologically).
2) Coincidentally, there exists a word in Japanese that is spelled (or pronounced) “HE” which means “fart” in English. (sorry for the inappropriate language)
3) So, he says that “the group will do its best without smelling too bad with the new name.”
4) Get it?

As promised, the next new album “WAVE” was released under the name T-SQUARE.

And the personel also have changed over the years.
