Mega rare 1974 jazz funk rock album recorded by Argentina's top jazzmen Pocho Lapouble, Ricardo Lew and Adalberto Cevasco (also members of Quinteplus, Jorge Lopez Ruiz's band and Gato Barbieri's group among many others). Includes the irresistible fast-paced funk rock track 'Se Acabó el Recreo' and the ethereal 'Todo en Su Medida y Armoniosamente' and 'Haceme Shaft', featuring Patricia Clark on vocals and unexpected moog arrangements. First time reissue, with remastered sound and original artwork. - Info: Those into world jazz will be aware of the amazing modal, big band and post-bop jazz recordings released in Argentina in the '60s. The body of work produced by the likes of Chivo Borraro, Jorge López Ruiz or Enrique Villegas would be able to rival the recordings of their American counterparts. The following decade would see a great openness to the exploration, with a jazz language, of other musical genres, with a certain preponderance of rhythm. The members of El Trio are part of a jazz generation with a greater propensity to experiment with electricity and with what could be considered an avant la page exercise of what soon afterwards would be called jazz rock -it is music composed and played, in the faraway Buenos Aires, at the same time Miles Davis adventured into new fields, with such records as "In a Silent Way" or "Bitches' Brew". "Todo en su medida y armoniosamente" reflects that same spirit of experimentation and fusion of diverse influences with an eye on both rock and local folklore. It's not surprising that the protagonists of this recording -Pocho Lapouble (drums), Ricardo Lew (guitar) and Adalberto Cevasco (bass) - had accompanied Gato Barbieri himself in his project "Latinoamérica" shortly before the release of this album where the presence of rhythms from the southern hemisphere infused the avant-garde jazz of the Argentine saxophonist. Drummer Pocho Lapouble had also created Quinteplus, which in 1972 released a single studio LP inspired by those same premises of fusion jazz. This album was originally released on the eclectic local label Music Hall in 1974 and probably distributed in tiny quantities, hence the rarity of this record and the current crazy prices in the collectors' market.

One can only watch in disbelief, this unstoppable creative cosmic explosion happening recently for the prolific Japanese producer, Yasushi Ide at the moment! Savoring the inclusion of his version of Bill Wither’s, Ain’t No Sunshine in the awe-inspiring Don Letts’ curated reggae covers compilation, Version Excursion just released out of Late Night Tales and still in cruise control through the galaxy but in full steam ahead mode, his Cosmic Suite Ensemble releases their first live album, Space Jam on vinyl and CD!

Earlier in the year in May 20th, in the midst of another wave of Covid infections occurring in Japan, also after several postponements as well, against all odds, Yasushi finally assembled this 11 piece Cosmic Suite Ensemble and held a truly astonishing and inspiring concert at Kanda Square Hall, Tokyo. His crack team of Japan’s top notch musicians, a star-studded bunch individually renowned as either a solo artist or active as a member of an established group, comes together with Yasushi Ide at the helm and performs in its entirety his magnum opus, Cosmic Suite. This piece released last year, notably received the following accolade from The Vinyl Factory, in their news column piece, “New albums to look out for in June 2021” which stated, “A 35-minute jam cut into two performances, Yasushi Ide’s Cosmic Suite incorporates house, techno, jazz, reggae and dub into its sonic melange.”

Masterfully orchestrated by Yasushi himself, his group manages to pull off the unimaginable and performs Cosmic Suite totally live! What a depth defying feat! A total free for all, improv and chaos amalgamation, fueling a magical musical odyssey through many corners and dimensions of the universe!

This album also includes, an incredibly dope cover of a very obscure, only performed live but never recorded, Yann Tomita piece called Patrol Of The Saturn. The enigmatic Yann Tomita might still be Japan’s best kept secret but he is also a mentor of Yasushi and for this cover, he truly pays respect to his master’s original piece but he also adds to it, some very heavy twin drum breaks played by the two drummers, Yukari Uehara and Kyoichi Shiino, layered with some dope steel pan madness by Genichi Tamura, then this piece picks up steam with a bit of nifty improvisational playing by the trumpet of Wataru Oyama, Kazuma Fujimoto (g) and Haruhisa Horie (Rhodes), and the whole band propels us into a dope sonic world of a mesmerizing dub attitude and slo-mo cosmic jazz funk vibes. Get set to orbit Saturn with this spaced out, funk-a-delic dub frenzy!

The song is a reaction to some people’s inability to make choices in their lives that consider the health, safety and humanity of others.
