Building a worldwide reputation off the back of their pulsating live performances, the explosive Japanese jazz band combine the highest musicianship with the coolest of cool sounds and atmosphere. Their brand of jazz is rough around the edges, unadulterated entertainment and constantly kept at boiling point.
Originally meeting at a club event in Tokyo in 2001. The Tokyo club scene was dominated by DJs until SOIL&"PIMP"SESSIONS arrived, breaking the mould as live pioneers. Calling their music "DEATH JAZZ", they gained recognition for performing an original form of aggressive alternative jazz.
It did not take long for SOIL&"PIMP"SESSIONS to become one of the hottest new bands in Japan and becoming favourites of major festivals including Fuji Rock (Japan-’03, ’05, ’07, ’09, ’11, ’13).
While continuing to perform in Japan, the band expanded their playing field performing in overseas countries and at major international festivals such as Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland - ‘06), Glastonbury Festival (UK- ‘07), North Sea Jazz Festival (Netherland- ’06,’08’&09), Java Jazz festival (Indonesia- ’09, ’12), Mosaic Music Festival (Singapore- ’08, ’09), Roskilde Festival (Denmark- ’09), Cape Town Jazz Festival (South Africa- ’10) and of course Sydney Festival (‘14) to name just a few.
"X" Chronicle of SOIL&"PIMP"SESSIONS is an eighteen-track compilation that looks back over the groups previous ten year career. The album takes a balanced view of the band's history with equal attention given to early albums Pimpin' and Pimp Master as well as more recent releases such as 6 and Magnetic Soil. Perennial live favourites such as ‘Fantastic Planet’, ‘First Lady’, ‘Waltz For Goddess’, ‘Summer Goddess’ and ‘Sahara’ are featured as well as classic recordings such as ‘A.I.E’ and ‘Sexual Hungry’.
