Japan's Koki Emura (Em Records bossman) is an incorrigible reissuer, putting out obscure and hard-to-find gems from all corners of the globe and with a distinctly elegant presentation every time. Experimental jazz musician Roland P Young has been at the centre of the Em catalogue, boasting a whopping three LPs for the label already and he's back on the map this time with a stunning new full-length of improv, experimentation and that usual charm. Apart from Isophonic Boogie Woogie, this might well be Young's craziest work to be featuring on Mr.Emura's catalogue, where brash and deranged percussion meet gorgeous acoustic treatment the whole way through. "Partenthetically", for example, could almost be played in an electronic DJ set. Highly recommended.
