Japanese drummer George Otsuka is always one hell of a hip cat – one of those players whose name on a record always means that we'll pick it up – and never fail to hear something wonderful! And while Otsuka first got his start working with a piano trio at the end of the 60s, this sweet set from the mid 70s really has him stretching out nicely – working with a freewheeling group that has plenty of spiritual elements – but in that gentler avant mode you'd find in the Japanese scene of the time. The set's got some especially great Fender Rhodes and piano from Fumio Karashima, plus tenor and soprano sax from Shozo Sasaki – and all tracks are nice and long, and really let the instrumentation build up in this flowing, organic sort of way. Mitsuaki Furuno plays bass, and Norio Ohno adds in a bit of extra percussion too – and titles include a nice reading of "Naima", with lots of fast-moving congas – plus "Physical Structure", "Mustard Pot", and "Little Island".

Three Blind Mice Blu-spec CD reissue series! Limited paper sleeve edition!

Drummer George Otsuka's (b. 1937) third leader album for Three Blind Mice featured his new quintet which included Shozo Sasaki on saxophones, Fumio Karashima on keyboards, and Norio Ohno on percussion.

Recorded in 1976, the album contains four tunes and opens with the leader's original composition and title track, which is played by the quartet without Sasaki. A lyrical and flowing piece, it features the pure tone of Karashima's acoustic piano and exchanges between him and Otsuka. Various percussion instruments played by Ohno are used effectively. Other highlights include John Coltrane's "Naima" which is played at a fast tempo and features Sasaki's passionate performance on tenor sax as well as Karashima's electric piano and synthesizer. Throughout, the Otsuka lays out the base structure with his dynamic, sensitive and expansive drumming.

Produced by Takeshi Fujii. Recorded at Epicurus Studio in Tokyo on February 11, 1976. Blu-spec CD is compatible with all regular CD players. Paper sleeve special limited edition.
