Info zu Unison

First solo album by a talented saxophonist representing the Kansai jazz scene.

Kei Ozone was born the second son of pianist/organist Minoru Ozone, who contributed greatly to the development of the Kansai jazz scene, and grew up in a jazz family with his older brother Makoto Ozone.

After graduating from Berklee College of Music in 1985, he has been active in his hometown of Kobe, where he has mainly trained younger musicians, and has now produced his first solo album.

The album was produced by Makoto Ozone, who had long recognised the saxophonist's talent for composing and had been urging him to produce an album for many years, and he also fully participates in the performances. The album is backed by Nakamura Kengo and Takahashi Sinnosuke, the ironclad rhythm section of the No Name Horses, a big band led by Ozone Makoto.

The album consists of nine songs: five originals by Kei Ozone, three standards, and Mitchell Foreman's "Gorgeous", a song he remembers his brother Makoto teaching him when he was in his 20s. The original songs are all melodious, pleasant to the ear and close to the heart. The album features a straightforward, airy sound and the interplay between the band members, giving it the true appeal of jazz.
