Shaped by Tokyo acid jazz maven Gonzalez Suzuki, Soul Bossa Trio documented many albums of relaxing, exploratory jazz having a debt to fusion and Brazilian jazz but a dazzling feeling of interplay often without their club-centered contemporaries. Suzuki was originally an associate of Tokyo Panorama Mambo Young boys, Japanese jazz-pop favorites through the ’80s. He founded Spirit Bossa Trio in 1993 with Toshiyuki and Koichi Matsumoto, and created the group’s 1st record, 1994’s A Flavor of Spirit Bossa, for Victor. Dance in the pub followed prior to the end of the entire year, as well as the remix recording Abstract Truth made an appearance in 1995. The 3rd proper Spirit Bossa Trio recording, 1997’s In Indigenous, revealed ’70s affects which range from Herbie Hancock (“Wiggle Waggle”) towards the Meters (“Hey! Pocky-A-Way”). Another 3 years brought their third remix recording in addition to two more studio room records, 1998’s Character Eyesight and 2000’s Rad.2000. The strikes collection Merely Sound: Best Monitors 1993-2000 gained a release with the CuBop subsidiary of Ubiquity, and 2003’s Dolphins was released through Italian experts Irma.
