Pianist & Composer, Masayasu Tzboguchi (from Tokyo Zawinul Bach, DATE COURSE PENTAGON ROYAL GARDEN) drops a new album showing new directions of acoustic/electronic Jazz. This is his first album in this kind of project where various elements such as afro funk, electronica, reggae and avant-garde mixes into the jazz based sound. Indeed the birth of cool & thrilling music.

This is a "reconstruction" album using original performance of the trio; Masayasu Tzboguchi (Piano), Masaaki Kikuchi (AC. Bass), Nobuo Fujii (Drums) . These 10 tracks were made under a concept to deconstruct the original materials from this performance and build them up again in a contemporary method/perspective.
The organic combination of the electronic effects with their performances of mellow ballad, rhythmic afro funk, freeform session, poly-swing track (3 people playing in 3 different tempos) resulted to something original showing new directions of his works that would expand the definition of jazz.

In this album, you could also hear collaboration works with other foreign/domestic artists within the same concept - Jan Jelinek, AOKI takamasa, Sora, DIll and Pardon Kimura rearranges and recomposes their original materials.

In 2001, Masayasu invites the veteran drummer Nobuo Fujii and forms the "Masayazu Tszboguchi Acoustic Trio". Later on, bassist Masaaki Kikuchi known as "Tobi-Atama" and "Masaaki Kikuch SLASHTRIO" joins the group and becomes the now present Masayasu Tzboguch Trio. As a trio, they regularly play at "Roppongi Alfie", "Shinjuku PIT INN" etc. and also have toured twice in Japan. They have also participated in Naruyoshi Kikuchi's jazz album "Degustation A Jazz" and "Nanbei no Elizabeth Taylor" and also took part in his Quintet Live Dub band.
The leader of this trio Masayasu Tszboguchi has released 6 albums so far under the name
"Tokyo Zawinul Bach" which is a computer-based collage funk group.
He is also the member of Naruyoshi Kikuchi's clustered-funk band "DATE COURSE PENTAGON ROYAL GARDEN" and also activates as solo and has released a studio album recorded in NY "Vigorous" (ewe Inc.) in July 2005 and the sequel album "Andrograffiti" in January 2006. A very active musician you could say.
The drummer Nobuo Fujii is one of rare musician who can express the 60's & 70's jazz sound &
feeling. Masaaki Kikuchi also has an original sense as a bassist and has a profound knowledge
of contemporary classical music as well as jazz music.
