3 stars One shot wonder from Japan, Igzit-Nine offering only one album selftitled in 2003, issued at Musea records in collaboration with japanese label Poseidon.

Well, this is fairly solid progressive jazz fusion with a touch of jazz rock here and there. The compositions are well played, all album is instrumental, nice duels between musicians, specially the keyboards and guitars are in places impressive. What is to mention is that the arrangements are concentrated on melodic side rather then on technical virtuasity, that doesn't mean the album is easy listning, quite contrary, lots of tempo changes, solos and breaks, anf the musicians really know to handle the instruments. In places they remind me of another bands from Japan like Kehell, Ain Sops or Kenso.

A nice, all round instrumental prog jazz fusion release that will pleases both camps, prog and jazz fusion. 3.5 stars for sure.
