This blow changed the history of jazz. Jiro Inagaki, a brilliant man and a monster, declared a declaration of war. A jazz-rock legend at his best! Jiro Inagaki was one of the central figures in the development of jazz-rock in Japan. Sensing the limitations of existing jazz music, Inagaki said, "I'm going to play something that has never been done before, not to mention jazz rock, with a band that has a strong rock flavor," and began working in earnest in the soul media in 1969. This work, "Head Rock," recorded in 1970, is emblematic of his activities and musicality. From the opening track, "The Vamp," to the final song, "Head Rock," this is a jazz-rock showcase that leaves no time to exhale, as the band pours all their ideas and passion into a lineup of ballads. It is a masterpiece that has an overwhelming presence in the history of jazz in Japan, and is the last remaining heresy of the prestigious jazz label, Tact. text by Yusuke Ogawa (UNIVERSOUND/DEEP JAZZ REALITY)
