Quasimode - Oneself - LikenessInpartmaint
After impressing with their version of Tubby Hayes' 'Down In The Village' for Raw Fusion, the Japanese jazz quartet now deliver their debut long player. The said cut is here along with the title track which also featured on that 12" plus 'Ipe Amarelo' and '1000 Days Of Spirit' from their new single also out on Raw Fusion. Other tracks of note are the percussive 'Skeleton Coast', 'Lucky Luciano' which has a lovely Latin swing and the monster dancer 'Giant Black Shadow'. The album is produced by Masato Komatsu aka Slowly, who has just released a version of Lesette Wilson's 'Caveman Boogie' featuring Quasimode, which is also worthy of your attention.
