Takeo Moriyama
East Plants

One of them there Japanese jazz reissues here. Takeo Moriyama’s 1983 LP East Plants isn’t a particularly famous record, but it’s held in high esteem by those who know their J-jazz onions. Moriyama is the drummer here, and his careful yet commanding kit work powers his group through a collection of slightly spiritual, slightly avant post-bop. Interestingly there’s no piano on this album - the melodic stuff is left to reeds, bass and tuned percussion.
