Trumpeter Itaru Oki's third album from 1975 reissued, a flamed out free jazz masterpiece. Itaru Oki (trumpet), Yoshiaki Fujikawa (alto sax), Keiki Midorikawa (cello, bass, piano), Gozo Yoshimasu (poetry reading on 5). We are very glad to inform that a long time out of printed OffBeat label LP is reprinted on CD. Itaru Oki visited Paris, France in the 70s and when he came back to Japan temporarily in 75, he organized a elite free jazz troop and recorded in studio. 'Phantom Note' is his 3rd album, more straight, heavier and flamed out free jazz than experimental music part of his 1st 'Satsujin Kyoshitsu (Murder Class)' or 2nd 'Shirasagi (Egret)'. Especially, the tune called 'Kodai Tenmondai (Ancient Observatory)' which Gozo Yoshimasu read his poet has a vigorous voice and playing, and it will move your heart surely. The masterpiece on 75 in Japan.
