Yosuke Yamashita "Chiasma" recorded on a Trio Summer Europe Tour on June 6, 1975 at the Heidelberger Jazztage, Germany.
Album "Counter Clockwise Trip" is then recorded in a month later (3,4,5 July) in Munich Union Studio, Germany, as Akira Sakata Trio. Akira Sakata (saxophone, clarinet) is a leader, and there is a bassist Adelhard Roidinger in place of Yosuke Yamashita. Drums & percussion, of course, the same master Takeo Moriyama.



Sakata going through the sharp pulse of Moriyama Takeo as expected. The bass is also as much talkative as saxophone and drum as much as possible, and it is fully adapted to their essence, sticking to beat-driven things. From the beginning to the end, an album that was dominated by a sense of speed.
Even so, the impression of Moriyama Takeo's drum is softer than Yosuke Yamashita Trio. He got something like some sort of mechanical precision, I thought, this is also very interesting...



If you find it, buy this album!

  2. Excellent offer. Thank you, Vitko.

    Incidentally, 坂田 明's companion and compatriot, 山下洋輔, made an LP with Roidinger for enja [enja 3001] just two years later:
    Yosuke Yamashita + Adelhard Roidinger - Inner Space (1977)
    This is, as most enja releases by Yamashita, oop. Although there was a Japanese CD available for about "5 minutes" some 10 years ago of the Yamashita/Roidinger recording...
