Masayoshi Fujita
Book of Life

Masayoshi Fujita - an artist you may know better from his Jan Jelinek collaborations under the guise of El Fog - completes the trio of vibraphone LPs begun with 2013’s Stories. Book Of Life keeps the focus on the big metal xylophone while also incorporating a wider range of tertiary instruments than the Japanese composer has previously. Orchestral strings, choirs and brass crop up on these exercises in contemporary classicism. Out via Erased Tapes.

Masayoshi Fujita and Guy Andrews
Needle Six

Phil thinks Guy Andrews was the guy who sang that cover of 'Mad World' but I think he's hopelessly wrong. Guy Andrews in instead a London based producer and here he has collaborated on a live BBC 'Late Junction' session with Japanese vibraphone player Masayoshi Fujita. It has now been released on a very limited 12" to make your Record Store Day just that little bit more improvised.  

Masayoshi Fujita & Jan Jelinek
Schaum

Masayoshi Fujita prepares his vibraphone with pieces of metal, toys, and percussion while Jan Jelinek layers his micro loops around his performance. Their second collaborative album after playing live together for ages, the result is a bizarrely jazzy minimal electronic soundscape, kind of James Bond bad guy esque.

Masayoshi Fujita
Apologues

Masayoshi Fujita is probably one of the premier contemporary vibraphone players, and with Apologues he steps away from his more electronically-abstracted music under his alias el fog. Here, the instrument sounds more like itself, the accompaniments from clarinet and strings adding up to some beautiful compositions.
