推薦盤!AL DOBSON JR.達と共に、アフリカン・ビーツ、変則グルーヴを取り入れたモダン・ビートシーンの旗手TENDERLONIOUS。22aの新作!

「Autumn Leaves」「In A Sentimental Mood」「Song For My Father」といったジャズ・スタンダードに目配せしたタイトルに「Oedo Bushi」なんて曲もあったりして特に意味はないと思いますが、和のエキゾチックを微妙に取り込んだ曲もあります。シンセサイザーに、電子KEYS, フルート、ファンキーBASS,アフリカン・リズムにインスパイアされた遊び心あるブロークンビーツ、変則グルーヴの時間感覚が楽しい。体験したことのないようなフュージョニック・ブギー素晴らしき世界です。 (サイトウ)

Tenderlonious returns home to his label 22a with this stunning six track EP. As the title suggests 'On Flute' shows us how diverse Tenderlonious's musicianship is as he embellishes each song with his signature flute sound. 'Ghana' sets the pace of the record with up-tempo afro beats, complimented by keys, strings, a distinctive lead synth and of course a soaring flute solo. 'Autumn Leaves' follows with a more UK broken-beat flavour, revealing a darker sense of atmosphere - think 'Bitches Brew' with a modern feel... Side A closes with 'Oedo Bushi,' a comparatively stripped back tune, a simple conga rhythm with flute and xylophone solos weaving in and out as if in conversation with each other - it's the type of tune reminiscent of something that you might hear in a classic samurai film like 'Shogun Assassin' or 'Harakiri'.

Side B starts strong and steady with 'Song For My Father', an upbeat number fusing funk and disco to create the perfect dance floor filler that builds to a climax with one of Tenderlonious's wild flute solos (one of my personal favourites!). 'In A Sentimental Mood' follows and, as the title suggests, shows the listener how this producer came by his name. Tender flute inflections and sensitive lead synths, backed by quiet whispers make this the perfect accompaniment to an intimate candle lit dinner. The EP finishes with 'Dale's Corner,' another broken feel on this one with delayed Rhodes supported by tasteful flute lines throughout - it leaves the listener feeling uplifted and wanting more!

To conclude, this is quite possibly Tenderlonious's finest work to date. There are not many producers that I can think of that have managed to fuse as many influences and musical approaches into one record as he has. He is clearly emerging to be one of the most talented multi-instrumentalists in modern music today.
