JEFF MILLS’ LIVE BAND
SPIRAL DELUXE is an Electronic Jazz Fusion one alongside established musicians with extensive background: the legendary keyboardist Gerald Mitchell (UR/ Los Hermanos), the Japanese rocker Yumiko Ohno (Buffalo Daughter/ Cornelius) handling Moog synthesizer and the Japanese bassist, new-yorker by adoption, Kenji “Jino” Hino who is none other than Terumasa Hino ‘s son, the worlwide famous Jazz trumpeter.
Spiral Deluxe was a special improvisational performance created by Jeff for the Exhibitionist 2 DVD project. With a limited amount of preparation and rehearsal time, the objective of the band was to create, shape and perform compositions in front of a live audience setting. Debuting in Tokyo, Sept 18 2015 at Terrada Warehouse during TodaysArt JP, a live recordings was captured in Kobe, Japan the following night on September 19th 2015 at Kobe Art Village Center.
With this first vinyl called “Kobe Session“, Jeff planed to launch the “Axis Audiophile Series”, a series of high- quality recordings: this will be some vinyls of 180g, delivering a sound encoded in 32-bit/48kHz.!
