This week's concert at CJC sees the jazz quartet Sumo release their second album Shiko. The album concept is based on the successful version of their first album, where six guest artists are invited to compose a piece with the quartet. As they may use the other guest artists also in three compositions, the final result is a recording of vibrant contrasting original pieces. The quartet (Gwyn Reynolds - Sax, Darren Pickering - Keys, Mike Story - Bass, Joe McCallum - Drums) are joined by Guitarist Brad Kang to play tunes off both Sumo albums and some sneaky extras. Shiko - One of the basic sumo exercises, in which the rikishi raises a leg high in the air to the side, then brings it down with a stamp. It is also performed on the dohyo to drive away bad spirits.
