Ryoto Nozaki‘s Jazztronik project has been one of the forerunners in the nu-jazz scene, producing an admirable body of work. Samurai embodies music from three Jazztronik albums that were previously released only in Japan. Nozaki‘s classical training is mixed with house, R&B, and Brazilian influences to great effect. "Muddy Muddy" is a work of exquisite beauty, and the title track has been a standout club fave for well over a year. With considerable depth and musical vitality, Samurai delivers in spades.
