Takeo Moriyama and his band perform ‘East Plants‘ live at the Pit Inn, Tokyo, in September 2018. It’s an exhilarating performance from the band as the track builds from a wild attack of percussion into the main theme, followed by rousing tenor and accordion solos, finally ending on a return to the main horn theme once more. Moriyama’s ‘East Plants’ album was originally written and recorded in 1983 and has been reissued by BBE Music as part of the J Jazz Masterclass Series. Our thanks to Moriyama-san, Fujimori-san and the band for their cooperation and assistance.
Album East Plants is available on vinyl, CD or digital formats here.
