Oneself Likeness [Jazz]

RELEASE: 13.07.2007

LABEL: Freestyle Records

VERTRIEB: Groove Attack


The Japanese jazz scene is currently hotter than ever. With high profile bands like Soil & Pimp Sessions and Sleepwalker enjoying great success all over the world, we now introduce the next big jazz band from Japan: Quasimode. Jazz in Japan, in all its forms, has become increasingly popular again, and the music is played in trendy bars, restaurants, shopping malls, as well as being used for TV advertising, which has not only increased the popularity of homegrown talent but also that of imported music from Europe such as Nicola Conte, Koop and Five Corners Quintet for example.

Quasimode is a 4 piece jazz band based in Tokyo, Japan, and was formed in 2002. Their sound is based on authentic jazz rhythms from the 1960's and 70's. With a mixed club and latin feel they deliver all their music live and have gained a strong support in their native country. Last year Raw Fusion released two killer 12" singles (both included on this album) which got massive radio and club play from the cream of the nu jazz fraternity. The Spiritual South mix of "Ipe Amarelo" in particular has been a permanent fixture in the record box of Gilles Peterson, Patrick Forge and Jazzanova, and still sounds fresh on each and every play winning new fans the world over. It's hoped that this debut European release will be a worthy introduction to music lovers everywhere.
