RIKO GOTO TRIO: Six Colors CD
(Karkia Mistika/Nekorekords/Kauriala Society)
Haunting and spooky slowjazz by this Japanese-Finnish tripod: Riko Goto (piano), Tapani Varis (bass) and Eki Joutseno (drums). Carefully restored private recordings from 2002 + live in Helsinki 2003. Music in the spirit of early Bohren, junkie-era Bill Evans, or the Necks howlin at the moon in a wood cabin. Free of time and tempo, yet structured and composed at the same, this is highest level telepathic interplay, and about time this solar material is made available.
