Everyone’s getting in on the Japanese jazz reissues these days. Studio Mule, BBE and Mr. Bongo are just three of the labels who’ve delivered new editions of old LPs in recent years. The latter come through with the goods again in the form of Beautiful Bamboo-Flute, a 1971 rarity that saw the legendary shakuhachi (bamboo-flute) player Hozan Yamamoto team up with the Sharps And Flats - one of the country’s most celebrated big-bands. Together they create a bombastic and brilliant noise on Beautiful Bamboo-Flute, a large-ensemble fusion-funk style that really struts. Cracking stuff.
