First ever reissue for this impossibly rare album that was originally issued in 1979 on the cult private Japanese label ALM, Miyasaka + 5’s ‘Animals Garden’ was a one-off project led by master drummer Takashi ‘Bear’ Miyasaka and features a powerful and progressive jazz group including saxophonist Koichi Matsukaze, whose ‘Earth Mother’ album was also reissued recently. The album features four cuts that were composed by Miyasaka: the lurching modal of ‘Animals Garden’ has elements of the work from the Nimbus label, ‘Dog’s Dance’ has a post-bop groove while the pacier ‘Pecker’s Blues’ is a firey dancer. The slower ‘Ballad For Mammoth’ calms things down somewhat but does break into some energetic freer improv moments. Exceptional and the most realistic way to ever own this!
