4 stars First live release of Japanese space prog band. Recorded in NY Tonic and released on Zorn's Tzadik records,this album attracted my attention by its characteristic "Tzadik style" cover. Avant- jazz?Klezmer?

No mistakes - real space prog, but what a great one! Sound is liquid and very jazzy, especially fusion drumming. Spacey soundscapes are very airy, sometimes psychedelic, and differently from some more "rock-based" colleagues, band's long compositions doesn't sound too repetitive or mechanic.

Could be compared with very jazzy version of some early Hawkwind's works, or Ozric Tentacles with soft and liquid sound. Really nice album for space prog lovers ,searching for different (jazzy) sound!
