Pianist Masabumi Kikuchi, who passed away just a few months ago, was one of most significant piano jazz master in Japan. Never so loud and radical as Masahiko Satoh or Yosuke Yamashita, Kikuchi spend big part of his life in New York playing with local artists. During 70s and 80s he was one of the fusion star on Japanese scene,later worked a lot on a movies soundtracks and during last decades returned to more mainstream jazz,playing post bop with Paul Motian and/or Gary Peacock or more chamber jazz with Japanese musicians.

It's interesting that on his most current albums Masabumi obviously showed increasing interest to freer jazz even if one can find a very few avant-garde Kikuchi's recordings coming from genre's "golden age" of late 60s or mid 70s.His ECM debut "Sunrise",released only three years ago (when Kikuchi was 73 years old),contains good example of Kikuchi's meditative free form improvisational jazz.

Recordings,presented on this new album,have been made a year before material,released on ECM's "Sunrise", but have been never released till now. Quartet of Masabumi on piano,American bassists of younger generation Ben Street and Thomas Morgan (who recorded on "Sunrise" as well)and Danish drummer Kresetn Osgood plays on eight fully improvised compositions,which not really sound like such.

Masabumi has been interested for quite a long time in new look on structure of songs, experimenting with tuneful fragments which in fact were too short for being true finished compositions,but sounded as part of (non-existing) longer pieces.Music,presented on this album, is probably best illustration of this his concept.

Each musical fragment (all them have no titles,just numbers)starts from the middle of some abstract tune and goes nowhere but at the same time never loosing initial tune or rhythm. Paul Motian-influenced Osgood drumming and double acoustic basses muscular groove builds excellent platform for slow to mid-tempo but no way lazy percussive piano. For outsider all this action sounds as he's listening to knotty improvisations of some composed tunes when music stays easy accessible and even almost catchy but he just doesn't can catch the tune,running away from him every next second.

As whole album, this music has magic ability to fix your attention from first sounds till the very end and leaves the listener with a feeling as if he heard full concert of different songs or one conceptual piece which has been developed before him under some quirky and secret formula. At the same time you understand that you can't recall even a single tune because of very simple reason - there were not true tunes presented.

The only serious warning for potential listeners of this album - it is full of Kikuchi vocalizes. If you are not happy about Keith Jarrett's moaning on some his recordings,then stay away from this Kikuchi work. Masabumi here sighs and moans hundred time louder and more often than you can hear on nosiest Jarrett recordings. For me personally,Kikuchi's vocalize is just a component of his music here and it only adds more special atmosphere,but I believe for some listeners it could destroy all music's beauty. Most probably Kikuchi's singing was one of the reasons why such a good material, recorded in 2008, hasn't been released till now.

Released on Danish ILK label, this album isn't so hard to find for on line purchase, but because of limited advertising and distribution possibilities there is a big chance it will stay almost unnoticed. Find it and you will enjoy one of the best ever Kikuchi's recorded music,at the same time experiencing unusual beauty of fully improvised jazz.

MASABUMI KIKUCHI Re-confirmation

After his studies in Berklee, Japanese pianist Masabumi Kikuchi returned back in Japan in 1969 with lot of experience and new musical ideas. Unlike some other Japanese former Berklee graduates of the time, he didn't import to his home country the spirit of free jazz. His passion was fusion.

In 1970 he formed his first whole-Japanese double-piano/double-drums sextet and released one of the very first fusion album in Japan - "Re-confirmation". Differently from dominated in Japan multi-national projects,where leading domestic jazz musicians played with world (mostly American) stars, Kikuchi Sextet was a rare example of whole-national band,developing still very new even for Western world genre of jazz fusion. As with many previous and later Kikuchi works, his-led band is deeply rooted in post-bop (especially rhythm section),with partial exception of freer sax player Kohsuke Mine.

Six Kikuchi originals are full of energy, not particularly aggressive, but tuneful and generally well balanced and executed. One can hardly find any specific "Japanese" taste here, the album sounds as if it was recorded by American jazzmen of the time. Rhythm section is obviously more traditional than the new sound and anchors the music to more mainstream jazz, while the use of a Fender piano(not Masabumi himself but Masahiro Kikuchi) brings the music towards more modern collectives of the time.

Year 1970 was most prolific in Masabumi's career (with almost ten albums released as leader/co-leader)and his successful career as one of leading Japanese fusion pianist started here. He will release more catchy and much more commercially successful albums later,but "Re-confirmation" is valuable as evidence of that rare inspired early fusion example which very soon will disappear from genre's recordings not only in Japan but everywhere in the world.

MASABUMI KIKUCHI Poesy : The Man Who Keeps Washing His Hands

Japanese pianist Masabumi Kikuchi is one among this country's best known abroad jazzmen. He studied in Berklee in late 60s and on return to Japan played with many American musicians,touring the country.

I've read in Masabumi's interview with Ethan Iverson (2013)he never liked his Berklee studies (except for Herb Pomeroy)and in his early years was influenced by advanced artists of the time as McCoy Tyner.He met Paul Bley when he played in Japan with Sonny Rollins,and Paul became his next hero.

Later, Masabumi started playing with bassist Gary Peacock (who palyed with Bley and lived in Japan for some years in late 60s-early 70s). Here 0n "Poesy",Peacock plays excellent deep physical bass on three compositions (I believe Peacock's time in Japan was his most inventive and advanced period), but generally this album is Kikuchi duo work with leading Japanese percussionist Masahiko Togashi.

Masahiko Togashi was one of very first Japanese free-jazz drummer in early 60s, but after accident in late 60s he wasn't able to play drums anymore. He switched to percussion and developed very complex and loose own techniques.Here on "Poesy" Masahiko demonstrates it in whole.

"Poesy" isn't characteristic album for Japanese early 70s jazz scene - it isn't loud,noisy,dissonant and quirky. No-one pushes music to the limit here. Kikuchi is obviously influenced by American jazz tradition, he plays tuneful and even warm piano,but without sentimentalism or catchy appeal of some his later works.He even doesn't scream a lot when playing on Jarrett's manner(he will develop this techniques later, but you still can hear him here as well what shows that he did it originally,with no relation to this Jarrett's manner; Jarrett will become star after few years).

"Poesy" is a great title for this music,just think about Western-Japanese cocktail,mixing European tradition with American freedom and Eastern Buddhist meditativeness.Music sounds well balanced as rarely,being beautiful,adventurous and stimulating at the same time.

Kikuchi will return back to States soon where he will stay for decades till now.He will release many albums developing his own style (some of them are really successful, others-not so much).Gary Peacock will become a real ECM star playing with Jarrett and Paul Motian among others (his Japanese period collaborations stay one of his most interesting works till now). Masahiko Togashi continued to enjoy Japan's cult percussionist status for decades ahead.

This album (with magnificent full title "Poesy:The Man Who Keeps Washing His Hands")was reissued on CD and became easier accessible evidence of great times in jazz.

MASABUMI KIKUCHI Sunrise

Japanese pianist Masabumi Kikuchi has been recorded for the first time as far ago as in 1963(on Toshiko Akiyoshi and Charlie Mariano's East & West). Since that he played and recorded with Gil Evans,Paul Motian and Gary Peacock among many others. Masabumi's peack of popularity as a leader came in early 70s when he released series of fusion albums, adding more freedom in generally strongly Miles Davis-influenced sound.

Since that Masabumi has been living in New York for four decades (where he passed away in 2015)but never received true recognition. His another more significant project was Tethered Moon - trio with Paul Motian and Gary Peacock. Starting from late 80s his albums are all obscure,during his last years Masabumi played mostly exclusively with different Motian projects.

For those familiar with Kikuchi music from 70s his works from few last decades could sound as serious surprise: searching for his own way Kikuchi tried many fields,from series of synthesizer music albums to dub. Still quite unusually for jazz musician's career Masabumi found his very own voice only in 00', at some his last years before passing away. Already on his duo album with excellent Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino,released in 2007, one can find Kikuchi's specific signature playing - abstract mid-tempo piano improvisations build of tunes micro-snippets with lot of space around.

"Sunrise" is Kikuchi's first album as leader for years and his debut on one of the most prestigious jazz label ECM (it took almost half of the century for Masabumi to wait between his first recording and this debut!).Recorded in New York with his regular collaborators drummer Paul Motian (for whom it became his last studio recording ever) and acoustic bassist Thomas Morgan, "Sunrise" is a collection of fully improvised songs,full of space and sounding surprisingly lyrical and poetic for such kind of music.

Kikuchi doesn't care much about piano playing techniques, he builds quite meditative and partially impressionistic music (so well known by Paul Motian own works)using spontaneous harmonies and lot of silence. Some tempo variations give enough life to whole recording saving it from being monotonous. The only imperfection of this album is quite unusual for ECM products low dynamic range of whole recording. Too often it feels like sound of quite energetic piano trio comes as filtered through cotton-wool filter. Play it as loud as you can to avoid this acoustic discomfort.

Few years later,already posthumously,ECM will release Kikuchi's only second release on the label. Live piano concert,recorded in 2012 in Tokyo,has a better sound and Kikuchi plays really slower, what makes silence (and that feeling of waiting for something what is expected but will never come in real)will illustrate his unique style in full. I want to believe Kikuchi was a lucky artist - all his life he has been searching for his own sound in jazz, and at last found it at the end of his long way.
