Squire Jaco
4 stars Canterbury prog played by Japanese musicians? Really?

Yep! And done pretty well, too. Led by bass player Hideyuki Shima, this group of skilled musicians from Japan do a fair impression of the sound of Hatfield and the North without copying their melodies. (O.K., they actually do lift an excerpt from "Fitter Stoke has a Bath" in the final track!) But this is a pretty enjoyable disc with some memorable melodies and interesting song structures in the Canterbury style. Occasional female vocals singing pleasantly in Japanese remind you that you aren't in England anymore. But if you never got enough of Hatfield (they only put out two studio albums), this is 55 minutes of homage that fills the gap nicely.

Squire Jaco | 4/5 |
