Great video. Obviously from his Casiopea days.
More Casiopea. No bass solo but good lawd! The musicianship and showmanship is outta this world!
I wish I could rock out like that. ... but I'm not sure it's allowed to do that on stage anymore...
Thanks for the links, I've was trying to find some casiopea stuff for a while. It's too expensive on Amazon and could not even find it in Japan when i was there last November
Anyone seen that DVD he put out w/Dennis chambers on drums?
Before mp3.com changed up, there was a ton of Casiopea tunes available for download! I think I have 2 cd's worth of stuff but I don't have song titles! I have a few T-Square cd's and a couple Akira Jimbo cd's! Casiopea music is hard to come by unless you want to pay import prices! My cousin, who did a tour in Japan (Air Force/4 years) bought a ton of music while there but oddly no Casiopea and he's a huge jazz/jazz fusion head!
Thx for this, I love Tetsous playing.
He totally reminds me of David Byrne in "Stop Making Sense". Nice playing though And a pretty groovy drummer to boot.
Heres something for ya:
Sorry to revive an old thread, but I had to post this link of Sakurai/Howe/Chambers' version of Punk Jazz...
Yes, indeed!!! Tetsuo is a groovin' fool!!!!! I have been diggin' him for quite a while-back when he was playing a Kramer aluminum neck bass.
A Groove is a Terrible Thing to Waste!
wow! thanks! you've just turned me on to a whole new avenue of jazz fusion...
I haven't heard playing like this in quite a while...
reminds me of a cross between Chick Corea and the Dixie Dreggs...
Definately a captivating player, and he does smoke wth Dennis Chambers. I've got all kinds of fantasies about laying down some tracks with Dennis, too bad I'll probably never get to meet him and even if I do, I doubt he'd have any reason to remember my name. Tasty fusion drummers are my (non-sexual, I am a family man, now) big musical fetish.
My biggest inspiration to pick up 6 string basses and It was thanks to him and Casiopea that i dig fusion as much as i do. Tetsuo is pure awesome!
EDIT: Has anyone else seen the Gentle Hearts DVD? Tetsuo is like 50 sumthin years old but he's ripped! It's insane he's like the Japanese Chuck Norris or somethin'!
I have that Gentle Hearts dvd. I love it.
I'm always amazed more guitarist don't know who Greg Howe is. I wish they would do a domestic release on that band.
He's up there with Fuze and Vernon, very expressive, yet precise cat!
If you are looking for other releases, try contacting Audiophile Imports or Downtown Music Gallery, even if it doesn't show up as an available release on their site, both Mark and DTMG can find other 'hard to find' releases. Ever check out any mid-90's Shrapnel recordings?
