A tense crime soundtrack from Japan by the legendary Toshiro Mayuzumi a Japanese composer known for his implementation of avant-garde instrumentation alongside traditional Japanese musical techniques. His works drew inspiration from a variety of sources ranging from jazz to Balinese music, and he was considered a pioneer in the realm of musique concrète and electronic music – served up in a host of shorter tracks with a really evocative feel! There's a definite jazz bent to some of the music, but given the brevity of the tunes, most numbers don't have standout solos – just strong use of key sonic elements in a really moody, striking sort of way! A few numbers are more song-based – a bit like some of the best American crime jazz of the late 50s – and these tracks burst out nicely to unify the shorter numbers. The whole thing's a wonderful pastiche of short melodies, instrumental solos, and dynamic rhythms – almost as sonically evocative as the images on the screen for which it was penned" Dustygroove
