Death Jazz meets world
Jazz ensemble Soil & "Pimp" Sessions is at the forefront of the Japan jazz world with their breathtaking and energetic style of free-form jazz known as Death Jazz. For their tenth anniversary, the group reached out to other musicians for a special collaboration album called Circles, and the result is an astounding clash of genres that's easily one of the best Japanese albums of the year.

The band has collaborated with vocalists before – including Sheena Ringo on My Foolish Heart – crazy on earth – – but Circles sees the band stretching the boundaries of its genre and really working to integrate their sound into other genres. In addition to Sheena, the album features an impressive list of artists like Bonnie Pink, Rhymester, Miyavi and Nanao Tavito.

The album's opening track – Jazzy Conversation featuring rapper Rhymester – immediately sets the tone for something different. Rhymester's spoken lyrics make up the dominant force throughout the song, with the band filling in between the verses. The strong bass presence and Rhymester's smooth delivery make for an exhilarating hybrid of genres.

The musicians in Circles are not just making guest appearances on a Death Jazz album. Instead, Circles chronicles Soil & "Pimp" Sessions' wild journey through different musical genres. Most of the guest musicians actually composed their respective songs, including Miyavi's rock-jazz hybrid Light Blue Soldier (Track 5), DJ Kentaro's electronica-dubstep hybrid club song Iceburn (Track 6) and Bonnie Pink's Hey Tagger, I'm Here (Track 10), ensuring that each musician's unique style can be heard.

Constantly traveling across musical genres and styles, Circles sounds like a remix album at times in that the jazz band rarely takes over the music. The only real exceptions are Sheena Ringo's Koroshiya Kiki Ippatsu (Track 2), a sly big band jazz tune that's very familiar to Sheena's own style of neo-jazz music, and Jose James' Summer Love (Track 3), which fits jazz into the rhythm of a waltz.

With only ten tracks, Circles doesn't overstay its welcome. It's always engaging to listen to, and it offers listeners a new Soil & "Pimp" Sessions that has never been heard before. It may disappoint fans that were looking to hear how the guest musicians adjust to working in Death Jazz, but its ambitious collaborative spirit will delight listeners. For music fans who aren't bound by genre borders, Circles is a true musical delight.
