One of the sheer joys of life is celebrating the many gifts and unique treasures that we meet along the way. New instrumental project by one of the premier voices in contemporary jazz Hiroshima. Their offering is appropriately titled “Obon,” which celebrates they’re 25th anniversary of recording a cauldron of Asian American music melded with the haunting melodies and penetrating rhythms of the Orient. (“There are Obon festivals all over Japan and even in Los Angles during July and August each year.”) “Originating in the Buddhist legend,” collectively as a project “Obon” pays homage to the spirit of the ensemble ancestors, friends, and relatives that have passed away with an abundance of blissful admiration for a continued celebration of life.
"Atomic Cafe" starts out with DJ scratches and then moves into a Crusaders feel, with trombonist Ira Nepus joining band founder and leader Dan Kuramoto on tenor saxophone during the theme. Koto player June Kuramoto, Dan's ex-wife, leads on the lovely cha-cha "China Latina," with Dan Kuramoto offering an easy soprano sax solo. Kimo Cornwell plays piano.
"Obon Two-Five" -- the title refers to its quarter-century of recording -- offers countermelodies from the Kuramotos, Dan on flute and later tenor, as well as dramatic taiko drum from Shoji Kameda. On "Pharaoh," dedicated to saxophonist Pharaoh Sanders, its feels like the band will break into some straight-ahead jazz at any moment. It actually does at the end of the subsequent "The Lighthouse," a nod to the legendary Hermosa Beach, Calif. jazz club, alternating eight bars of swing with eight bars of Latin during Cornwell's solo at the end.
