4 stars KBB are an excellent Fusion band from Japan led by violinist / guitarist Akihisa Tsuboy. "Lost And Found" is their debut and it's so professionally done, from the cover art, to the art on the cd itself, to the perfect production and sound quality,this is first class all the way. Of course these guys are also "lights out" when it comes to playing their instruments. This is an all- instrumental affair.

"Hatenaki Shoudou" opens with guitar, drums and organ in a fantastic intro.The bass joins in and is very fat just the way I like it. It settles some before a minute but it's still powerful. Synths come in. Violin finally arrives before 3 1/2 minutes as the organ runs and bass throbs. Amazing tune. "Catastrophe" opens with deep bass sounds and drums.Violin before a minute.This is intense. It settles right down before 4 1/2 minutes with piano and synths. Violin joins in followed by bass and drums. The tempo picks up before 8 minutes. Nice bass. "Antarctica" opens with piano as bass, drums and violin eventually join the party. A change after 2 minutes as the piano stops. It's darker and deeper with violin playing over top. Another change after 4 minutes as violin leads and the tempo picks up. This section really reminds me of KANSAS. A change again this time before 8 minutes as we get some atmosphere. This is great ! It kicks in after 11 minutes. Nice. It ends as it bgan with piano. "The Desert Of Desires" opens with synths as drums join in and the tempo picks up. Organ before a minute with chunky bass. The guitar follows ripping it up. A calm before 2 1/2 minutes with piano, then the guitar joins in as it solos tastefully. Synths before 5 1/2 minutes then the tempo picks up. The guitar is back before 7 minutes.

"Another Episode" opens with piano and drums. Violin joins in as the bass throbs. It settles 1 1/2 minutes in with piano. Violin again joins in as themes are repeated. Nice bass after 4 1/2 minutes then the violin starts to light it up. Guitar late. "Nessa No Kioku" opens with some atmosphere as the violin comes in. Bass before 1 1/2 minutes followed by drums as the violin just takes off. It settles after 3 minutes and turns spacey before kicking back in around 4 1/2 minutes with violin leading. Atmosphere before 6 1/2 minutes then the violin and bass start to lead again. "Divine Design" opens with some amazing violin before it settles in with some atmosphere including bass and drums. It's building. The violin is back. This sounds so good. It picks up before 5 minutes with organ out in front then violin.The bass is impressive too. A guitar solo before 7 1/2 minutes and later.

A must for fans of instrumental Fusion.
