Ear-shatteringly loud death jazz, with rocking solos in quick succession, performed by bizarrely costumed artists; the Japanese sextet Soil & "PIMP" Sessions once had North Sea Jazz visitors running away in horror. Though others felt the groove and begged for more. From the very first loud jazz note, the formation with the suction power and speed of a jet plane really shakes the house. The cult status of this ferocious Tokyo band began with the band's performance at the most popular festival in Japan: the Fuji Rock Festival. This concert was seen as the highlight of 2003. The band is very productive and with each release of an album, such as Pimp Master (2006), Pimp of the Year (2007) and Pimpoint (2007), their reputation grows. They have reached the top of the lists of internationally renowned music gurus, such as BBC deejay Gilles Peterson.
