  • Weird japanese organ grooves

    Over the last few weeks, I've been really enjoying a couple of Japanese organ driven 'experimental' albums I've found. They are 'The Dock Of The Bay - New Created Sounds' by Susumu Arima and His Misty Sounds, specifically the title track, and 'Yamaha Superstar' by Koichi Oki, in particular the incredible version of Light My Fire that iwas mentioned in the Baron's Bag a while ago

    So, I was wondering, any other recommendations along these lines?

      I've got an Ad-Rhythm one by a Japanese lady which is pretty good - can't remember the name or the title - which is no use at all - I'll have a rake through the piles and pull it out and report back.

        I've got no idea what it's like, but I would!!

        There's one on the Regal label (UK) by the Shiro Michi All-Stars which is very nice - not really experimental, (there's a touch of the Wunderlichs about it to be honest) but I really like the version of Mas Que Nada. You don't normally get harps in a conventional organ combo, but the one Shiro uses lends a touch of class to the whole thing. Wonder if he did anything else?

          Cheers gents...the Yamaha Superstar is on Ad-Rhythm as well so it might be worth investigating...

            Yes - I have that one - I like the bonkers version of 'Spinning Wheel'. I always pick up Ad-Rhythm LPs just in case.

            Can anyone tell me which Ad-Rhythm has the version of either UFO or Space 1999 on it.

              Looks interesting, but in my experience 'keyboard jazz' means piano rather than organ, where you'd tend to see 'organ jazz' instead...

              The one I liked on the Oki LP was 'Summer In Siam' or something like that - great stuff!

              Funnily enough, recently found a Japanese issue copy of Ray Conniff's 'Jean', with a rather tasty 'Spinning Wheel' on it, as well as 'Aquarius', 'Sunny', 'Wichita Lineman', 'Windmills Of Your Mind', 'Hey Jude' etc. Dunno if others have the Conniff, but well worth your 50p if you see it around...

                'UFO' is on 'Love Sensations' by Harold Smart.

                  I've got a Harold Smart Latin one on Ad-Rhythm...from memory it's got a decent track on it, easy jazz done weird with lots of percussion...Jungle something or other perhaps. I'll see if I can dig it out.

                    Yeah, just Arima did an organ type record on JVC that seems to be in the same series. I dunno really, I'll see if me getting paid tomorrow forces me to chance my arm...
