Ground Zero - Plays Standards (Mega Blowout Sale)

"Ground Zero pays tribute to some of their favorite music on this CD, where they integrate classic older material that has been very influential to them with their own music, merging them into something all new (something that Otomo refers to as the ‘void halfway between my soundtrack work over the past few years with Chinese/Hong Kong films, and the music I have been doing with GZ’). Some of the material that is tackled in this fashion is by: Victor Jara & Mercedes Sosa (Chilean/Argentinian orchestral pop), Miyauchi Kuniro (60s Japanese TV theme), Gene Raskin, Nelson Cavaquinho (Brazilian samba), John Philip Sousa, Abe Kaoru/Toyozumi Yoshisaburo, Massacre (Frith/Laswell/Maher), Mengelberg/Beresford, Ei Rokusuke/Izumi Taku, Phew/Yamamoto Seiichi, Berthold Brecht/Johanes Hanns Eisler, Burt Bacharach. The variety of material and opportunity for legitimately cross-levelling your consciousness via turntable manipulation and sampling makes this one of the most delirious and riviting Ground Zero albums to date and a transcending, multi-tiered listening experience."
