3 - KITAJIMA, OSAMU - BENZAITEN - (LP) 
OOM DOOBY DOCHAS


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.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Benzaiten (god Of Music And Water) 02. Taiyo (the Sun) 03. Tengu (a Long-nosed Goblin) 04. Benzaiten (reprise) 05. Whoma (immortality)

4 - KITAJIMA, OSAMU - OSAMU - (LP) 
OOM DOOBY DOCHAS


This is the third album by Osamu Kitajima, one of Japan's most prolific artists from the ethno-rock, world music and progressive department. You can certainly not divide all the mentioned stylistic aspects from each other for they were all incorporated in a homogenious sound and complex arrangements. It is the same with his other albums like 'Benzaiten' and or his fourth 'Masterless Samurai'; traditional Japanese music meets Western jazzrock and progressive sounds to form a new style unheard by most people in Western countries at the time. Osamu Kitajima easily plays with elements of reggae and funk, fusion jazz and colorful pop while staying true to his Japanese roots with bits and pieces of traditional melodies and the use of old Asiatic instruments. The Japanese influence makes this music uniqe and still it gets as close to Western rock and pop sounds as it could. An adventurous journey through the world from East Asia to West Africa and to the steaming metropolises of the UK and USA is your reward when you put this perfectly produced album onto your turntable.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Sui-in 02. Frost Flowers 03. Hear The Rain, See It Fall 04. Endless Steps 05. Yesterday And Karma 06. Purple Hills And Crystal Stream 07. Elemental Spirits 08. Fur, Fin And Feather 09. Sui-yo
