These six guys from Japan are crazy fun jazz/funk cats. The BBC just reviewed their last album Planet Pimp, which is a “full on death jazz attack,” as Soil & Pimp accurately described it themselves. It’s not a very new release (it has been out there since August 2008), but we are betting it’s new for many of you.
The first time we heard it, we wanted to go running to Japan to hear them live and if possible bring them to Shanghai to exchange sounds with our very colorful and awesome local jazz scene. Check the review and if you want to hear more than what’s on their myspace let us know, and we’ll share some with you.
