Oo err ..
Despite being amongst my favourite djs, i want to like Kyoto Jazz Massive's recorded music a lot more than i usually do. That said, the projects they align themselves with are almost without exception excellent. Case in point being Hajime Yoshizawa's Sleepwalker. Don't take my word for it though. In this [beyondjazz.net] interview with Shuya Okino, he mentions a song they just cut with Pharaoh: "When we knew Pharoah was coming to Japan, we offered this recording to his management. But we got the answer (ok) 4 days before the day for recording. Sleep Walker made a song for this recording during this 4 days. Every member stayed at Hajime's house. When recording, Pharoah asked us the image of this song. Hajime answered that this image is the feeling from father and children met again after long time no seeing. So we decided to call this song “Chichi to ko (means Father and children in english)”. When Masa played tenor sax, Pharoah shouted "Masa"! It was very impressing. And when Pharoah started his solo, I couldn’t stop crying. It was so beautiful! Our dreams came true..."
