This pleasure that the whole body is paralyzed by a single drum. Akira Ishikawa, a transcendental funky drummer born in Japan, runs around the wonderland of the groove!
Akira Ishikawa, a transcendental funky drummer born in Japan. His ability to run around and fuse jazz, rock and African music in a row and a row to create her own musicality is highly regarded in many fields. Masterpieces of jazz rock to rare groove are lined up in his career, but this work is especially loved for his outstanding music selection and exciting musicality. “Let’s Start” which is a tight cover of Fela Kuti’s Afro Funk, “Bongo Rock” which is dynamic with drum breaks, and “Pick Up The Pieces” which is a masterpiece of the average white band made into jazz-funk. There are a lot of amazing monster tunes that are hard to believe that they were recorded in 1975. The support of masters such as Kiyoshi Sugimoto, Hiromasa Suzuki, and Takeru Muraoka also shines.
