Takeshi Inomata & Sound Limited: Drum Method
1972 Japanese jazz-rock album, with an instrumental cover of
"Where Do We Go from here".
Re-released in Japan on LP in 2015 and CD in 2017.
Takeshi Inomata, currently known as one of the most renowned and most
influential jazz drummers in Japan, was born at Takarazuka, Japan in
1936. His father (an oboist of Takarazuka Revue Company), his elderly
brother (a genius jazz trumpeter), and The Benny Goodman Orchestra
whose album he had again and again listened to in his teenaged days
could influence much on him and as a result he appeared on stage as a
drummer at age 16. His terrific talent and enthusiasm for drumming
surprisingly improve and develop his technique, that could let himself
win the prize of Swing Journal Magazine's newcomer award in 1957. He
showed his ability of jazz drumming in US Camps (later he mentioned he
had played drums with smell of butter and hamburger steaks around him)
and joined for a jazz outfit Westliners, but an enthusiasm that he
wanted to play borderless music made him form Sound L.T.D. (Limited),
a progressive jazz-rock outfit. In those days such a mysterious and
perverse creation might confuse every rock & jazz fan and
reviewer. Now Takeshi makes a large contribution toward training
younger jazz musicians and making a record of the history of Japanese
jazz, and simultaneously stands on many worldwide stages ,
e.g. Carnegie Hall or Apollo Theater.
