村岡実 『恐山』 Minoru Muraoka "Osorezan"(1970,Japanese jazz rock)

original edition
Minoru Muraoka was born in 1923,and began to studying shakuhachi  (=Japanese bammboo flute) officially in 1939.Later in 1959,he started to mix shakuhachi music with popular music.By playing with  Herbie Mann,a famous jazz flute plaer,in 1967,Minoru playing shakuhachi was known to  a lot of jazz fans.

This album "Osorezan" is a live recording.
The concert was held on April 7th ,1970 .
It had two parts.
First part was named "Soul shakuhachi" and tracks they played were American blues songs, Bossa Nova,Japanese traditional songs ,rock music....and so  on.
Second part was named "New Dimension  " and the tracks they played were "Take Five""Come Together""Oiwake""Kawanakajima""Ma""Kobushi" and so on.
And the last track they played was an epic "Osorezan".
In this album,"Osorezan"was the first track,but actually,was the last track at the concert.

second edition

In mid 70s,this album was released as the second edition with the different cover  .but one track called "Take Five"was deleted from the album.I don't know the reason.

For more information ,there are scans in the file.
I hope it will be released as the perfect live CD some day.
Some of Minoru Muraoka's albums are very interesting to prog fans ,however , most of them are too difficult to get for us......
You know them at these sites.

Thank you very much for sharing these very hard to find Japanese recordings that many of us in the Western world never heard of or could have hoped to find some day. You are a true master!

It seems like atleast 1 part is missing from the wav-files Master !!! When unpacking it says to include part 6 but there is only 5 at the moment.

Hello!

It looks like Megaupload has been taken down. As terrible as that is, in the meantime would anyone be able to put this on Rapidshare?

Take Five may have been removed from the re-release because of Copyright reasons (originally a Dave Brubeck number).
