SOIL&¨PIMP¨ SESSIONS
 
 


 
音樂總是不按牌理,遊走在 Jazz/Rock/Club 之間,2001年成軍於東京六本木的 SOIL&”PIMP”SESSIONS,誓言以絕佳的演奏實力和娛樂性十足的舞台效果,打 破演出者和觀眾之間的僵局,他們要在出場的第一秒就 HOLD 住全場。
而就是靠著這個率性不拘的表演方式,讓他們即使是沒有任何作品的狀況下,前 所未有地,被 Fuji Rock Festival 特別邀請參加2003年的音樂祭演出,之後還成為 該音樂祭的演出常客。日本人氣歌姬椎名林檎也賞識他們的音樂,更是多次和樂 團合作了〝殺手千鈞一髮〞、〝My Foolish Heart〞等歌曲。
Soil & Pimp Sessions 六名團員,都具有古典音樂的背景,卻選擇了自創的〝Death Jazz〞(爆音爵士)風格作為己志,是因為團員們認為,音樂應該是大家一起同樂 的概念。既然,搖滾樂中有以華麗、金屬、狂吼、快速的 death metal 風格,爵 士樂也可以做得到,所以,他們六人要創造出一種表演模式,讓演出的過程中, 樂手和觀眾可以互動頻繁,創造每場獨有的觀賞經驗。
這個六人編制的爵士團體,有一個在其他團中看不到的角色:HOLD 住哥。外表 不苟言笑,卻又總是帶著金項鍊穿著跳 TONE 花襯衫的〝社長先生〞,就是擔 任這賣色又賣笑的職務。他說,〝爵士樂是不容易懂的音樂,所以我們盡量讓寫 出輕鬆愉快的音樂,讓觀眾可以更容易親近它。〞為了達到這個目的,社長先生
創造了自己的新身分,在每首音樂演奏間,有了他的帶動唱,演出現場的氣氛永 遠沒有冷清的可能。
 
近年來,樂團持續受邀參與各種類型的音樂祭,包括 Glastonbury Festiva(l 英國)、 東京 Jazz Festival、Rock in Japan Festival.、MOSAIC Music Festival(新加坡)、 North Sea Jazz Festiva(l 荷蘭)、Roskilde Festiva(l 丹麥)、Cape Town Jazz Festival (南非)、Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival(印尼)、Gent Jazz Festival(比 利時)...等。
 
2015年底,樂團以 DSD 錄音方式,發行了現場演出 DVD「A Night in South Blue Mountain 南青山夜未眠」。2016年4月,樂團將發行最新專輯「Black Track」, 並將展開一連串的世界巡迴。台北將是日本站之後的國際首站,做為台團指標之 一的 SKARAOKE 也將同台演出。想要同時打開視覺聽覺感官的你,怎能錯過?


 

SOIL & "PIMP" SESSIONS

is an explosive Japanese jazz band, comprised of six musicians; Motoharu (sax), Tabu Zombie (trumpet), Josei (piano), Akita Goldman (bass) and Midorin (drums), Shacho (agitator),.
 
At its core, the group is about giving pulsating live performances. SOIL & "PIMP" SESSIONS combine the highest musicianship with the coolest of cool sounds and atmosphere. Their brand of jazz is rough around the edges, unadulterated entertainment and constantly kept at boiling point.
 
Each member brings his own unique talent and perspective. They originally met at a club event in Tokyo in 2001. The Tokyo club scene was dominated by DJs until SOIL & "PIMP" SESSIONS arrived, breaking the mold as live pioneers. Calling their music "DEATH JAZZ", they gained recognition for performing an original form of aggressive alternative jazz. The band comments; “We always felt that in the world of jazz, there was an unwritten rule that the musicians were to concentrate on their techniques and the audience were simply there to admire, like a transmitter/ receiver relationship. We wanted to break away from that and create exciting jazz with far more interaction between the players and the audience”.
 
It did not take long for SOIL & "PIMP" SESSIONS to become one of the hottest new bands in Japan and becoming favorites of major festivals including Fuji Rock. Their international breakthrough came when Gilles Peterson, the renowned British DJ, introduced them through his Radio 1 show "WorldWide'. In the summer of 2005, by invitation from Giles, the band traveled to the UK to perform on his program. The name spread further via the international jazz network and at the BBC World Wide Award later that year, SOIL & "PIMP" SESSIONS was awarded with the "John Peel Play More Jazz Award".
 
The band's album ‘Pimp Master’ was released in 2006 through Compost in Europe and Brownswood Recordings in the UK. The band played at Glastonbury Festival in June 2007 coincide with release of their ‘Pimpoint’ album in Europe and the UK. They came back to Europe in the fall of 2007, appeared BBC’s popular music program “Later…with Jools Holland”, played with Jamie Cullum for BBC’s Electric Prom show.
 
Then the band went on to releasing ‘Planet Pimp’ album in 2008 and ‘6’ album in 2009, and the album ‘Magnetic Soil’, released on 2011, was awarded with “album of the year” award of Japanese jazz music magazine called “JAZZ JAPAN” magazine. In 2013 they celebrated their 10th anniversary and invited 10 top singers and rappers including Ringo Sheena, Rhymester and Jose James, to record ‘Circles’ album. The album was a huge success to celebrate their anniversary year.
 
While continuing to perform in Japan, the band expanded their playing field performing in overseas countries and at major international festivals such as Fuji Rock Festival (Japan-’03, ’05, ’07, ’09, ’11, ‘13 ), Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland - ‘06) , Glastonbury Festival (UK- ‘07), North Sea Jazz Festival (Netherland- ’06,’08’&09), Java Jazz festival (Indonesia- ’09), Mosaic Music Festival (Singapore- ’08, ’09), Roskilde Festival(Denmark- ’09), Cape Town Jazz Festival(South Africa- ’10) WOMAD(Australia ‘15) and many more.
In 2014 the band released ‘Brothers & Sisters’ album and in 2015, they conducted the Australian tour for their 2nd time and toured Europe for their 11th time. In the European tour they performed various European festivals including Glastonbury Festival.
It is now confirmed that the band is going to release their 10th album ‘Black Track’ in April this year.
