YOSHIHIDE, OTOMO's NEW JAZZ ORCHESTRA: 'Out to Lunch'
ONJO takes on the Eric Dolphy classic with a 12-piece ensemble of exemplary musicians that seamlessly mixes jazz, a contemporary music aesthetic, electronics, punkishness and noise to form a nuanced and expressive music that is at once genuinely contemporary and at the same time digs deep into all manner of musical roots. It whispers, whines, caresses, howls and screams. An impressive record that manages to mix personal virtuosity with an immensely strong sense of collectivity.
