TAKUMI SEINO – OLD RED CHAIR ON THE PORCH (CD by Vos)
Seino is a regular guest in the columns of Vital Weekly. Many of his CDs have been reviewed here. Often live recordings, like this new one. Seino (electric & acoustic guitars) is accompanied by Yasutaka Yorozu (bass) and Larry Marshall (drums). Marshall is an American drummer and composer who lives and works from time to time in Japan. Yorozu is a acoustic bass player from Kyoto moving within very different musical territories. Seino graduated from Berklee College of Music in 1996 and works mainly in Japan. Most of the time in small combinations if not solo, like the trio Haki Hachiya (vocals) and Paed Conca (clarinet) with whom he played in 2012 in Switzerland. ‘Old Red Chair on the Porch’ features seven compositions by Seino. Most of them of a laid back jazzy kind. However in the closing piece he gets lose, with a long and burning solo. Most of the time however we move along  pleasantly meandering music that is however always directed towards a clear goal. Seino proves himself again a virtuosic and sensitive player. His playing is colorful and disciplined, with a clear and distinct sound. He is in good company with Marshall Yorozu, although the playing style of the drummer is not always the one I wish in combination with Seino. (DM)
