巽朗(元DETERMINATIONS)にHOMEGROWNTANCOSOIL& "PIMP" SESSIONS元晴ら、名うての面々が結成したバンドの初作。スカ、レゲエを軸とした演奏にジャズの色を加えて豊潤さを増したバンド感は、名称の由来となったウェイン・ショーターの同名曲や“I Shot The Sherriff”のカヴァーにも明らか。オリジナルの“Lucky Dragon 5”の快調さを含め、個々の経験が物を言う演奏の数々がここに。

 

[English Translation]
Consisting of Akira Tatsumi (sax player/former member of disbanded ska band DETERMINATIONS), TANCO (leader/bassist of HOME GROWN, the reggae band), Motoharu (saxman of SOIL & "PIMP" SESSIONS, the explosive jazz band) and 3 others, the band of highly regarded 6 artists hereby drops its 1st album. Incorporating ska and reggae-based renditions with distinguished jazz flavor, the rich and lavishly enhanced band-feel is clearly prominent in the cover tunes, such as “Speak No Evil” (the famous number by Wayne Shorter which they named themselves after,) or “I Shot The Sherriff”. Including the very successful original track “Lucky Dragon 5”, each member’s abundant experience distinctly portrays their brilliantly varied performance here.
