Rittor (Japan), 2007
A cool little guide to all things club jazz -- put together by Shuya Okino of Kyoto Jazz Massive, and featuring both record listings and writings! The record listing section is a fair bit smaller than other Japanese books like this that we stock -- about 40 pages that show how you might build a club set from one key record, with suggested segues for the tunes before and after. The remaining 200 pages of the book is an extended essay, in Japanese, written by Okino -- telling his thoughts and concepts of what Club Jazz should be. Given that he's been lecturing around Tokyo these days on the topic, you can bet that he's got plenty to say -- but we warned, you must read Japanese to enjoy the bulk of this book! © 1996-2010, Dusty Groove America, Inc.
