KINGDOM☆AFROCKSのドラマーKEIICHI TANAKAのソロ・アルバムが素晴らしい!スイスの〈MENTAL GROOVE〉からアナログ・リリース!

2015年10月に事故の為に他界したKINGDOM☆AFROCKS解散後のタナカ慶一のソロ・アルバム。フェラ・クティのカヴァーやアフロビートに取り組みながら、交流の深いアイヌ伝統音楽を継承するOKI氏やMAREWREW、HAKASE-SUNも参加して、OKI DUB AINU BANDの曲やアイヌ民謡、日本の伝統民謡も取り上げて融合しています。レジェンド板橋文夫のピアノとの共演もあり。"It is a great album! It sounds like he had passed through my lessons."とのTONY ALLENの言葉通り、リズムは単純な規則的軌道から解き放たれて、フリーダムな時間軸をうねる。アフロビートのマジック。素晴らしい。60x60のポスターと、裏面に日高健介,OKIによる解説、コメントと歌詞を掲載しています。 (サイトウ)

This is what Keiichi Tanaka says about his intention in making this album. In 2014, Japan??s leading 8 piece Afrobeat band with a cast of characters, Kingdom Afrocks put a halt to their group activities.
