Release date: 10/07/2018

Barcode: 0710473604369

Catalog no.: DOOLP0017005

Item ID: 462323

2018 reissue on Oom Dooby Dochas. World music and ethno sounds with an obvious Japanese origin meet progressive rock and psych. The result is a captivating piece of melodic and deeply atmospheric music that paints pictures of life in ancient Japan into your mind when you lay back, close your eyes and listen closely with your thoughts turned off. If Pink Floyd were Japanese their music might have sounded like that. The frequency of the arrangements on 'Benzaiten' reminds of what our English heroes have created in the early to mid '70s just with a different ethnical approach.

Also available: BENZAITEN (CD).

KITAJIMA, OSAMU - DRAGON KING

KITAJIMA, OSAMU - DRAGON KING

The step from 'Masterless Samurai' to 'Dragon King' (1981) has not been such a big one as it has been with the albums before. We experience a softer version of Osamu's jazz rock/Japanese folk fusion, that often even shows soul pop aspects, typical for it's time.

 

KITAJIMA, OSAMU - MASTERLESS SAMURAI

KITAJIMA, OSAMU - MASTERLESS SAMURAI

On 'Masterless Samurai' (1980) Osamu completely abandons the space rock aspects here and takes a turn into jazz rock with a progressive edge, that he still combines with these totally exotical sounding Japanese folk elements.
