No travel experience is complete without a soundtrack and,it would be just perfect with jazz. Ini kompilasi keren, dgn sederet nama2 besar (ga ada yg penyanyi kelas 2.. keren deh), dan liat rentang waktunya, mulai dari 1968 sampai 2002. Artinya 34 tahun rentang musik di jazz, masih bisa disatukan dalam satu album yang ga terdengar maksain , tapi malah terasa menyatu. Luar biasa. Tujuan dari album ini cuma satu, supaya pendengarnya punya teman di perjalanan yang asik. Ga bikin ngantuk, ga juga bikin emosi.. it’s all for your driving time, it’s all for your travelling moment, it’s for the road, and it’s jazz. Kalo elo banyak ngabisin waktu di jalan, apalagi kejebak macet mulu, this one’s for you. Save Driving Guys!!

After an incredible single on the swedish Raw Fusion, the winner japenese jazz band Quasimode’s debut LP has just landed on Inpartmaint in Japan. oneself-LIKENESS is a fantastic album full of strong jazz compositions and stunningly fresh vibes. The style of the whole album is closer to the more composed and defined sound of stylish club or traditional jazz with a bit of latin touch then to the much-improvised freaky new japan jazz. This relative peacefulness and control provide the main essence and power of this full-length while showing how perfect acoustic jazz can sound today in Tokyo. Highlights of the album are the killer cover of Tubby Hayes’ ‘Down in the village’, the brazil influenced epic ‘Ipe Amarelo’, the spiritual and groovy ‘Skelton Coast’ and the deep and fluid title song ‘oneself-LIKENESS ‘. Each tune represents high quality and pure listening bliss, the only thing i miss is more of these awesome songs. Cant wait to see Quasimode playing live and this LP to be released worldwide. Raw Fusion will put out ‘Ipe Amarelo’ with a Spiritual South remix in the autumn. Japenese jazz is coming stronger than ever!
