One of two releases from Otomo Yoshihide's ONJT with Mizutani Hiroaki, Mizutani Hiroaki, Yoshigaki Yasuhiro + Sachiko M and Jim O'Rourke, paying homage to Albert Ayler's ESP release, "Bells".


ONJT +: Bells (Doubtmusic)
Label: Doubtmusic    
Released in: Japan    

"ESP edition of Albert Ayler's "Bells" LP was a special one that a tune (Bells) was included on A side only, B side had no groove. ONJT + plays 2 version of "Bells". Suddenly the sound of explosion come at us, it seems they emphasize their virile phase of ONJT(+). Albert Ayler's pastoral melody and savage sound of ONJT(+) make exquisitely beautiful contrast. Play it as loud as your audio system and neighbors permit.

ONJT means a abbreviation of Otomo Yoshide's New Jazz Trio, Otomo Yoshihide (guitar), Mizutani Hiroaki (bass, misc.), Yoshigaki Yasuhiro(drums, percussion) and "+" means the guests for those 2 CDs ; Sachiko M (sinewaves) and Jim O'rourke (EMS synthesizer).Otomo continues with his "New Jazz" project from ONJQ (Quintet) via ONJE (Ensemble) to ONJO (Orchestra), and this time he organize his core group / trio form. Those 2 CDs are long-expected works, Otomo try to revive birth and death of "free jazz" by contemporary sounds and interpretations.

A death of Albert Ayler has been identified on 25th October, 1970 at East River, N.Y.C. 40 years has past from Albert's death. How does improvised music changed over 40 years ? Here is the answer in some way."-Doubt Music
