Out of stock

*Limited Edition* Soundtrack to Koji Wakamatsu's 1972 pink film "Ecstasy of the Angels".  Japanese pianist Yosuke Yamashita formed a bass-less trio in 1969 with drummer Takeo Moriyama and tenorist Seiichi Nakamura. Yamashita's Bill Evans-influenced style expanded to include free jazz, a rather radical step given the conservatism of the Japanese jazz scene at the time. Beginning in the '70s, his trio (山下洋輔トリオ) toured widely and played many major European events, including the Berlin and Montreux jazz festivals. The CD even has a track with director Wakamatsu reading his manifesto in regards to movie making. Highly recommended if you love free jazz and strange soundtracks to strange films.
