Bobby Watson: Live at "Someday" in Tokyo
Not only is the ensemble and section playing and solo work by the members of the band a strong indication of just how far Japanese jazz musicians have advanced, but the fact that they can sustain the listener interest in a piece of music that runs for more than 15 minutes reveals just how versatile and imaginative their playing has become. Their prowess also allows them to smashingly respond to Bobby Watson's demanding arrangements and alto. This set is modern big band music at its best and is highly recommended!
