“There are two things I am seeking in jazz. One is to swing, and the other is to be funky.” Shingo Okudaira, speaking with an unwavering gaze, said that his ultimate idol is still Art Blakey (ds). Taking the famous tune ‘Moanin'’ as an example, he cheerfully began to talk about the appeal of the jazz giant. This led to his beliefs and leadership theory as a jazz drummer. An interviewer gave a great review on this new album. This album pours the ingredients of jazz into the listener's mind and body, driving them to want to hear his live shows.
