OJP038 : Pulse Convention / Simultaneous Spontaneity

In 2006 Wataru IWATA (Piano and Fender Rhodes) started his project Pulse Convention with UEZI on drums before becoming a full band with the addiction of Hiroshi NAKAMURA (Saxophone) and Noboru ANDO (Contrabass) in the late 2007. 

IWATA named and formed the band with the aim to express and show the generative reaction of each player to the surrounding atmosphere and that particular moment where they interact not only to the music but to the space of the notes filled in order to create a specific sound moment after moment. After a number of live events, concerts in clubs and bars, they stopped playing together in the end of 2008. Finally Pulse Convention was revived in the fall of 2018. 

This album captures that fresh moment of their reunion in a studio where they just improvised for a few hours. Here you have 9 tracks which travel between atmospheric contemporary jazz without having one member trying to be in front of the others. A real unity and pleasure transpires through the whole album as they never stopped playing together.


All the songs composed and performed by Pulse Convention. 
Mastering by Pierre Vervloesem.
