Masabumi Kikuchi 菊地 雅章, Kikuchi Masabumi, 19 October 1939 6 July 2015 was a Japanese jazz pianist and composer known for his eclectic music that ranges from vanguard classical to fusion and digital music. He worked with many diverse musicians, including Lionel Hampton, Sonny Rollins, Woody Herman, Mal Waldron, Joe Henderson, McCoy Tyner, Gil Evans, Elvin Jones, Miles Davis, Gary Peacock, Paul Motian, Billy Harper and Hannibal Peterson. Album 2016 11 Songs. Black Orpheus Live. Jazz 2016. Manhã De Carnaval From Black Orpheus. Black Orpheus, the solo piano CD from Japanese-born pianist Masabumi Kikuchi, may be the starkest, loneliest music in the world. Masabumi Kikuchi 1939-2015 was a versatile, if ultimately idiosyncratic artist. Early in his career he worked with a panoply of mainstream music makers, everyone from drummer Elvin Jones, to producer arranger Gil Evans, tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson and pianistcomposer Mal Waldron. But he proved-from 1990 on-too individualistic, a musician with no technique or so he said, who never felt possessed of virtuosity.

Black Orpheus reveals that Kikuchi's iconoclastic path may have been worth it. Displayed here, the concert unfolds almost continuously as a series of improvisations. The album's centerpiece is a staggering, intimate deconstruction and remarkable revisioning - note by note, tone by tone - of the title theme Manhã de Carnaval: Theme from Black Orpheus by Luiz Bonfa. Kikuchi finds not only the haunted romance that lies at the tune's heart, but also mysterious metaphysics. Black Orpheus Live, 2016. Tokyo, Pt. III, 05:33. VI, 06:38.

If Cecil Taylor were a minimalist, hed sound like Masabumi Kikuchi does on this extraordinary album, recorded live in Tokyo in 2012. It was Kikuchis last solo recording. Kikuchi died three years later at the age of seventy-five. For comparison, think of Keith Jarretts solo albums. Jarretts performances tend to run long, Kikuchis here, short: ten originals plus Luiz Bonfas Manha de Carnaval, under four to eight minutes in length
