Swan Dive [DVD + CD]

Korekyojinn: Swan Dive  [DVD + CD] (Magaibutsu)
Label: Magaibutsu    
Released in: Japan    

Drummer Yoshida Tatsuya's amazing improvising advanced rock band Korekyojinn in a CD and DVD release with guests including Hoppy Kamiyama and Uchihashi. The CD presents 6 tracks recorded live from 2006 - 2008 at three venues. On two tracks guitarist Uchihashi Kazuhisa joins the band, and keyboardist and vocalist Hoppy Kamiyama plays on another two. The DVD, edited by Sanrigan, is taken from three live concerts between 2004 and 2008. Complex, polyrhythmic and flushed with enthusiasm, Korekyojinn is one of the most forward thinking improvising rock bands on the planet, highly recommended.

"Tatsuya Yoshida, born in Kitakami, Iwate is a Japanese musician; drummer and composer who is the only consistent member of the renowned progressive rock duo Ruins, as well as Koenji Hyakkei. He is also a member of the progressive rock trios Korekyojinn and Daimonji. Outside his own groups, Yoshida is renowned for his tenure as drummer in the indie progressive group YBO2, a band also featuring guitarist KK Null, whom he also joins in the current line up of Zeni Geva and he has played drums in a late edition of Samla Mammas Manna. He has been cited as "[the] indisputable master drummer of the Japanese underground". Along with his participation in bands, he has also released several solo recordings."
