Wonderful Jap only “electronic” soundtrack that is THE album his fans have been looking for him to produce for too many years now – Essential Tomita!

Tomita's music score on this album is a tribute to his late friend Dr. Hideo Itokawa, a pioneer of the Japanese Space Program. The album’s 13 “cosmic” tracks are all about melodic “spacey symphonics” and that’s where Tomita has always been at his strongest. Indeed he still uses a lot of his familiar trademark sounds from his 70’s/80’s classic albums (Mellotron choirs, cosmic string synths, as well as the familiar high-register “whistling” synth sounds used on some of the strongest melody lines from his classical past that we all know and love, but the comical elements are all but gone!

Tomita is now a little over 80 years old now, and although we have not had much in the way of new “electronic” music from the Japanese maestro since ‘Dawn Chorus’ in 1984, he has still been active in Japan producing soundtracks, some purely symphonic, some traditional, some a mixture of both styles.

On the 28th of February 2012, Tomita released his score for the film: ‘Okaeri Hayabusa’ - Welcome Home Hayabusa’ {Peregrine Falcon} containing over forty minutes of new music.

I have seen it said on the Internet that there is mention in the - all Japanese - sleeve notes of some reworked classical parts from: ‘Bermuda Triangle’. Not mentioned is his re-arranging of Ives' ‘The Unanswered Question’ (from ‘Kosmos’), which includes the adding of a bass sequence.

This release ties in closely with his recent ‘Planet Zero’ album (2011), which is a recreation of a cancelled concert from 2011. Both feature live solo trumpet and have his excellent new longer: ‘Tristan And Isolde’ with and without trumpet solos (first heard on ‘Planet Zero’) as well as the ‘Itokawa’ and ‘Hayabusa’ theme first heard on his ‘Ultimate Planets’ album (2011).

As with the quality of audio and packaging you get from Japanese imports, ‘Okaeri Hayabusa’ comes with the usual higher-end-price bracket you equally expect from them, but this is the only way you will get the album, because there is almost no chance of this attaining a release outside of Tomita’s homeland of Japan – and as a fan of the man’s music – I believe this album is worth every penny.

‘Okaeri Hayabusa’ comes with an 8-Page (4 colour / 4 b&w) Booklet with sleeve notes, but unless you have done a course in Japanese translation they are not much use to you I’m afraid!
But here the main thing is the music and that is superb!
If you are a Tomita fan – you NEED this album.
