Following the success of their landmark compilation, J Jazz: Deep Modern Jazz from Japan 1969-1984, BBE present another exploration into the very finest Japanese Modern Jazz. J Jazz Volume 2 builds on the solid foundation of the first compilation and sees co-compilers Tony Higgins and Mike Peden once again pick choice sections from their own record collections. They present a deep dive into an intoxicating and beguiling range of styles: from cinematic roaring big-band (Little G by Nobuo Hara) and sparse minimal acoustic funk (Teru-Teru Bozo by Teru Sakamoto), to deep spiritual modal epics (Dragon Dance by Makoto Terashita and Harold Land) and funk fusion (Mother of the Future by Electro Keyboard Orchestra). J Jazz 2 delivers more astonishing high quality jazz that will appeal to the old school hard-core jazz head as much as those digging the sounds of the current vibrant jazz explosion in the UK and USA. The specially chosen tracks on J Jazz 2 span 25 years of Japanese musical progression and invention. From the elegiac stark beauty of Serenade to a Dimly Lit Street and the modal vortex of Daguri, to the fierce post-bop freedom of Bull Trout and the mid-tempo Bossa lilt of Vietnam, there is enough here to satisfy the most curious and demanding jazz fan seeking something extra special.
