Quasimode - The Land Of FreedomGeneon Music
Japanese jazz quartet Quasimode follow up their debut 'Oneself-Likeness' with another first rate set packed with firing jazz dance material. 'The Man From Nagpur', 'For Self Defense', 'Percussion Revolver' and 'Dark Beauty' featuring Mika Arisaka all hit the spot but what makes this album so special is a guest appearance from my favourite female jazz vocalist bar none, Carmen Lundy. She graces the spoken word intro 'Over The Horrizon', the immaculate 'Object In The Mirror' and a new version of her classic 'Time Is Love'. Need I say more!
