Five men and a pimp, that must have been the idea behind theJapanese SOIL&"PIMP"SESSIONS that started in 2001 in order tobreak with every thinkable jazz form. The result is a wildlydressed sextet playing an extremely loud and equally tightvariation on jazz that brings to mind the happy punk music of somany years ago. This is all centered on band leader and 'über-pimp'Shacho, who can excite both the band and the audience in anappropriate Japanese way. The six band members can often be seenperforming for a seething crowd. Blood, sweat and jazz; thisappears to be the outline of the musical master plan to which theyadd death jazz, as they have christened their music. These days,SOIL&"PIMP"SESSIONS are very sought-after on the club circuit.They have an unequaled reputation for live shows. Every festivalwith any respect for its own reputation can't do without thisanarchistic company. In 2008, their fourth brainchild saw thelight, the album Planet Pimp.
