ONJO
Otomo Yoshihide's New Jazz Orchestra


This is Otomo's first Orchestra work. From Ground Zero to ONJQ, Otomo always made inroads into Avant-Garde music. This orchestra work include two Japanese famous female vocalists, Kahimi Karie and Hamada Mariko, and have various sounds - noise, pops, jazz, orchestral big bang hits, happening in their playing, obscure tone, Sho - Japanese traditional instrument, all Onkyo sounds, and so on. Otomo did his best musical direction for this work. This must be landmark of his works.
