Editorial Reviews

Ascendant trumpeter and composer Takuya Kuroda makes his Blue Note debut with the release of Rising Son, which was produced by José James. Kuroda, who is best known for his inspired presence in James' band, steps forth here to helm that remarkable band which features keyboardist Kris Bowers, electric bassist Solomon Dorsey, drummer Nate Smith, and trombonist Corey King. James mostly stayed on the other side of the glass in the producer s chair except for a hypnotic version of the Roy Ayers classic Everybody Loves The Sunshine to which he lends his captivating baritone. The imaginative guitarist Lionel Loueke also contributes a bluesy, percussive solo to one of the album s standout tracks Afro Blues. No one sounds like Takuya, says James. His tone, warmth and most of all his storytelling have inspired me for years. His writing is soulful, modern, and effortlessly bridges the gap between jazz and soul, and between history and tomorrow. Afrobeat rhythms play a crucial role throughout Rising Son, reflective of Kuroda s six-year participation in the New York-based Afrobeat ensemble, Akoya. Afrobeat s entrancing shuffle propels several of the album s tracks including the tantalizing Afro Blues, one of the album s six original tunes on which Kuroda s spiky trumpet melody with urban swagger evokes Lee Morgan, one of Kuroda s significant influences along with Clifford Brown and Miles Davis. The album also features two Roy Ayers gems Everybody Loves the Sunshine and Green & Gold.

I appreciate the idea behind what Kudora is doing. In a short bio, Kudora states that he's been jamming with cats like Glasper, and it shows in his sound.

Performance is extremely well executed, rather IMO this album was stylistically disappointing.
With a few exceptipns, [afro blues - Lionel Louke was a great touch!] this album was rather dull with few interesting ideas, with some tracks bordering tooooooo close to smooth jazz..

Few good tunes I'd revisit to listen to in the car, but not again for itself.

I first discovered of Takayu Kuroda on NPR Jazz and loved his story. The CD is nice with extended songs reminencent of old school CD's from Miles Davis and Monk. I have to say that my faviorte is Everybody Loves the Sunshine, a remake of the Roy Ayers song . This is a 9 minute song that is a perfect blend of vocals, melody, and truimpet riffs that I think would make Roy Ayers proud.

After a couple of listens I really began to like this recording, very modern, state of the current art type jazz. Reminds me very much of the type of thing that Christain Scott is doing - very groove oriented , soulful and at times funky . This CD fits perfectly in my collection for music that matches this genre. The musicians in his band are all top notch, I especially like what the drummer is doing on all the cuts . Iv'e even began looking into some of Takayu's earlier music and am looking forward to hearing more from him in the future.
