16th, 2011 ... oh it was a very hot night in Osaka, Japan, and in a
live space named Nakatsu Vi-Code was much hotter, regardless of
friendship among the audience. Let me tell you why ... after the gigs
by Zonk Monk (a young Osakan Neo-Prog band) and Watafei (theremin-based
acoustic ambient project), a Japanese Jazz Rock Pride DJAMRA appeared
on stage in front of us, with a special amazement. Here we go!
Under preparation on stage by Takehiko FUKUDA hahhaha.
Look, what a hot (and sincere) audience. Very familiar with each other.
... Anyway, at about 8:30 PM, DJAMRA invaded into our space finally. Sadly, Masaharu had not enough talked funnily as usual. :P
Exactly a Jazz Rock Explosion.
Shinji KITAMURA (alto saxophone)
Akihiro ENOMOTO (drums, percussion)
Takehiko FUKUDA (keyboards)
Akira ISHIKAWA (guitar)
... And Masaharu NAKAKITA (bass), the leader of Ahonoko ... err ... DJAMRA.
Aggressive Shinji and Cool Akira ... a splendid pair.
They, the regular quintet, played 3 songs as follows:
1. Dying Sleeper
3. Aho Doon (Ahonoko merged with Zetsuen Doon ... very eccentric)
after that, Masaharu suddenly made an announcement about a new (sixth)
member, whom he had met upon a Japanese jazz festival called Takatsuki
Jazz Street. Yes, this courageous (!) female trumpeter, named Sayaka
KAWADA , had come up!
Sayaka KAWADA (trumpet) ... the sixth Djamrer.
The new sextet amazingly performed perfectly with each other and played 4 more songs based on the brass section.
4. Time Flies Like An Arrow
5. Assassin In Sin
6. Pierrot's Foot Goes Into Convulsions
7. Komurakaeri (Encore)
A picture Sayaka was teased by Masaharu and the audience (including me hahhahaha) and embarrassed.
DJAMRA the pride of Japanese Jazz Sextet ... they made a wonderful Osakan night for us the audience.
Thank you for reading my report about DJAMRA in Nakatsu Vi-Code. ٩(̾●̮̮̃̾•̃̾)۶
