    First release from Cruisic is “Jazz Carnival” a cover of the classic Brazilian-fusion instrumental tune by the jazz funk trio Azymuth. Cruisic arranged the famous song into a medium dance tune where samba and jazz meet. By featuring cosmic synthesizer sounds and a hard blowing saxophone upon an electronica driven samba beat, Cruisic brings the heat of the 1970s and the coolness of modern jazz together.

    "Quartz" is a Jazzy hip hop track composed by track maker Yukinari Iwata, “Quartz” intensely features Yuko Ichizuka, Hammond Organ and piano player from Banana Needle with chilling electronica and trashy drum sound. Two different sounds, acoustic and electronic, interact and improvise together.

    Cruisic初のリリースとなる”Jazz Carnival”はブラジルのジャズ・ファンクトリオAzymuthによるブラジリアン・フュージョンの定番ともいえるナンバーをミディアムテンポにアレンジし、ダンスミュージックとしてサンバとジャズの交点に着地させたカバー。エレクトロニカとサンバが融合したトラックに、コズミックなキーボードとハードにブロウするサックスをフィーチャー、 1970年代クロスオーバーの熱気と現代ジャズのクールが同居する。

    トラックメイカー岩田幸也によるオリジナル楽曲。気鋭のオルガン/キーボード・プレイヤー市塚裕子(Banana Needle)を全面的にフィーチャーし、チルなエレクトロニカとトラッシーな質感のドラムで作り上げたジャズ・ヒップホップ・トラック 。アコースティックとエレクトロニックの二つのサウンド領域が絡み合い、インタープレイを繰り広げる。

    Yukinari Iwata : Programing, Ryusuke Kakizawa : Drums, Sax & Flute : Yoshio Iwamoto, Keyboards : Yuko Ichizuka from Banana Needle, Drum Tech : Yuko Uchida, Recording Engineer : Ryuji Seto, Mixing Engineer : Eitetsu Takamiya
