Kazutoki Umezu Kiki Band - 2013 08 03 Bad Doberan DE 132.46 AUD MC (Ob)

1 Squirrelly Dragon (part) (5.47)
2 Monkey Mash (3.36)
3 Gibb's Paradox (11.31)
4 Gelcoroid (5.23)
5 Izumoya (12.26)
6 Dressler # 36 (9.12)
7 Crawler (10.29)
8 Jumaina (10.54)
9 Make Make (8.43)
10 Viva Chuosen Jazz (8.46)
11 Flying Head (6.01)

These guys were amazing! I danced all the way through it with other teers and ignored the rain just to keep on dancing. So this is the first seed from Zappanale 24. I missed the first 10 seconds - apologies: maybe a patch will appear later.

As the rain hit the mics they caused a mighty pop on the recording so I have painstakingly removed each one by hand. Otherwise it's not too shabby a sound.

Recorded on Tascam Dr 08 taped close to the soundboard: Wav 24/44 and Tracked, de-rained, dithered and Flac'd in Reaper.

Love to Joe Trump the drummer who was a genuinely lovely chap (and sent me the set list - I owe you another port Joe) and had a fantastic style: just loved it.

Finally, apologies to AG who I rather hastilly described as crazy for following the Kiki band round Japan and to Zappanale. I now understand how right you are!

As the Zappanale page says -

There are as many releases of band leader Kazutoki Umezu - ???? (real name) as cooperations in band projects. One of his first own bands was the Doctor Umezu Band, which performed 1983 at the Jazz Festival in Moers and published an album with a humorous variation of Free/Avantgarde Jazz one year later. The Kazutoki Umeza Kiki Band performed at the jazz festival (2003) in Moers, too, and released a CD with a Progressive Avantgarde/Jazzrock Show.

Born in 1949 in Sendai, Japan, the saxophonist learned to play the clarinet with 13 years. After his studies of music („Creative Jazz“) he moved to New York City in 1974, where he worked together with David Murray, Lester Bowie, Arthur Blythe and Oliver Lake, as well as with John Zorn, Barre Phillips and Peter Brötzmann. Back in Japan in 1977 he played together with Toshinori Kondo and Masahiko Togashi.

Umeza founded own bands. He had great international success especially with his Doctor Umezu Band, which presented a humorous version of Free Jazz. 1980 he performed with this band at the Donaueschinger Musiktagen and two times he gave a guest performance at the Moers Festival and other european festivals. He teamed up with the more slapstick oriented large-sized Seikatsu Kojo Iinkai Orchestra and the band DIVA, all-female. 1989 he founded the sextet Shakushain. With Tom Cora (RIP) and percussionist Samm Bennett he played in the Trio Third Person, which also recorded with singer Tetsuhiro Daiku. Projects with Masahiko Sato, Kazumi Watanabe and Nobuyoshi Ino lead him to Australia in 1990.

Two years later he founded a japanese klezmer band (Betsuni Nanmo Klezmer); besides he experimented in the band Nazo with the fusion of arabesque and jazz. In 1999 he founded the Doctor Umezu Kiki Band, which published three CDs so far and has been on tour in Europe and South-East-Asia. He is member of the Dutch saxophon sextet De Zes Winden and can be heard on albums from Mal Waldron and Yosuke Yamashita. In addition he works with Marc Ribot, George Lewis, Ned Rothenberg, Wayne Horvitz and Kenny Wollesen, with David Sanborn, B. B. King and Acid Mothers Temple SWR.

Guitarist Natsuki Kido was born 1964 in Kanagawa, Japan. The musician, who is active in the fields of avant-gard progressive rock has been a member in several bands, Bondage Fruit, Ewe, Warehouse, Coil, Pere-Furu, Era, Black Stage, Salle Gaveau, World Heritage and Korekyojin et al.

Bassist Takeharu Hayakawa played at the terrific Satoko Fujii Quartet before his engagement with Umezu.

The long lasting powerhouse drummer Joe Trump played together with Elliott Sharp in Carbon, with Gawk, Carlos Alomar, King Black Acid and the King Black Acid And The Womb Star Orchestra.

Kazutoki Umezu is one of the most productiv and most important jazz wind instrument players, not only in Japan but worldwide. He did concerts in more than 32 countries and performed on festivals in Moers, Vilnius, New York, Tokio and Singapur. Umezu is of high significance for his colleagues and has an excellent reputation all over the world. His desire to dissolve musical limitations, to experiment and to improvise is comprehensible by his many album and CD releases. The sound of his sax and his clarinet is constant, clear, spirited and energetic, often full of absurd humour. Stylistically the japanese musician is going very far, e.g. into the Loft Scene of New York, jewish klezmer, korean monks and german krautrock avant-garde, jazz rock, eastern music and multifaceted jazz styles.

It's not possible to classify the style of the actual Kiki Band. There is jazz rock who breaks into avant-gardistic fields and free jazz, into the easiness of folk music and then changes into cutting hard progressive rock with heavy complexity. There are unusual beats, enormous dynamically change of tempo and manifold, energetically drums, expanded saxophon and guitar solos and ethnic harmonies. First of all: dynamic, animated forcefull jazz in all varieties and acoustic colors.

And who can argue with that?

Hey guys!

http://www.zappateers.com/bb/viewtopic.php?p=281363#281363

In case you didn't notice: I captured the audio stream of this show - maybe it is, although lossy (and not tracked), of interest for you too. Maybe for a good matrix recording?

I also seeded the Polka Streng stream recording: http://www.zappateers.com/bb/viewtopic.php?p=281364#281364
