News: Jiro Inagaki and Big Soul Media "By the Red Stream" reissued on CD

This is a new title for us, but following on the AC's announcement of the Mannheim Rock Ensemble CD, he also recommends this new reissue from Nippon Columbia. Last year as we were deep diving into the Japanese underground, we featured Jiro Inagaki's "Dosojin" album, one of our Priority 3's. And while it doesn't appear that album has been reissued yet (and with all these sudden reissues out of Japan, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see one), in the interim it appears this is well worth seeking out. The AC says: "It's kind of an anti-war concept album with just four long instrumental pieces. It's basically what you would call electric big-band or electric modal jazz rather that straight up jazz-rock, but it does feature some nice organ work, fuzz/wah guitar and plenty of Fender Rhodes. A really well-done and atmospheric album, if you're so inclined. Needless to say, this one has been a very rare and expensive item in the Japanese jazz collector scene for many years, and has seemed to completely escape notice in the outside world."

The AC also provided a link to Amazon Japan, which features some sound samples as well.
