YOHEI(dr) talks about his experience at music school and the successful story of JABBERLOOP on the Japanese magazine "msg (music school 2013)". 
Very interesting story for all JABBERLOOP fans and great advice for people studying music!

You can read online version in Japanese here.

Have a clear goal and do your best!


- How did you start playing drums?
When I was in junior high school, somebody rented a drum for the school festival. It was crystal drum like YOSHIKI's (X JAPAN) and looked really cool. At that moment, I felt like "This is it! I wanna play drums!" Then I got lucky that I found a person who gave me a drum set. I thought this was the destiny.. When I first started, I was playing Visual-Kei music. After entering high school, I did some sessions with my friends and became having interests in many different genres. So I took drum lessons. Eventually I started thinking of becoming a professional musician and I thought I could be if I go to the music school. So I went to Kouyou Music School in Shiga which has a partnership with Berkeley Music School. But I was not a good student.. I didn't know how I should have spent at school. School taught me the basics and I improved my skill, but I should have tried to learn more willingly. I couldn't realize it and I felt discouraged.

- What made you change after that?
My classmates were getting better and better. I was wondering why, then one of teachers told me that they knew what they wanted to do, or how they wanted to play, so the teacher gave them specific advice to improve their skills. Classmates are like rivals. We encourage each other. Spending two years at school with them was a really important time for me. I think I started to think myself as a musician at that time. If anybody wants to go to music school, definitely they should try their best no matter what. Teachers are very passionate teaching us, so you should take its advantage. It is also important that you make clear what you want to do. If not, you may end up wasting your time at school like me.

- You thought you could be a professional musician as soon as you graduate school. But what was the reality?
There were some people who became pros right after they graduated. But for me, I had been playing sessions with local musicians for about two years. Then we finally formed JABBERLOOP. One day, MAKOTO (TP) suddenly declared "I will move to Tokyo. But I don't want to go by myself. Why don't we go together as a band?".  lol  We decided to move to Tokyo together and made a demo CD with three songs. Before we finally moved, we went to Tokyo just to check how it would like and we did a street live performance in Shibuya. Despite our expectations, there were so many people stopped by and saw our performance. CDs were sold well. Then we thought we could do it in Tokyo.

- You got great responses in Tokyo
Yes. So we rented a house in Tokyo and lived together there. We didn't want to be busy just to make living, so we prohibited ourselves from having any jobs, and we just kept playing on streets.

- How did you make living?
Somehow we managed. We had sold CDs on streets. We had performed two to three times everyday other than rainy days. Sometimes we sold 100 CDs a day. We didn't use a studio for practice. We practiced parks or streets. We had kept doing that for about two years, then we started receiving offers for club events. And we made our debut from Major label finally.

- What do you think how things you learned at music school are affecting to your musical career now?
At school, I learned not only the technical skills, but "musicianship" on the stage. That is really helpful for me. I think learning basics is very important. You can make your originality when you know the basics. Learning basics at school is definitely a great help.

On 3/24, JABBERLOOP joined the Cherry Blossom Festival in Kobe, Japan. In Japan it is customary to partake in, "O-Hanami"; the drinking of "sake" under cherry blossom trees in order to enjoy the spring and beauty of the coming season.  At this concert, real cherry blossom trees were displayed for people to enjoy the surroundings as they are supposed to!

For lovers of Shibuya-kei music, albums by new hip-and-groovy artists are becoming harder and harder to find in modern Japan. Thankfully, Kaoru Ono is bringing this sound back into fashion. His debut album, Music Tranquilizer, reminds me so much of Capsule's "space station No. 9", that I expected Kaoru to be another cute apple-cheeked female with a bobbed haircut - not so!

Mr. Ono is not alone in his retro adventures; two members from Domo artist JABBERLOOP make cameos in tracks 4,7, and 8 wielding both the sax and the trumpet. There aren't really any lyrics on Music Tranquilizer until Suzuyo Miyamoto and Cho (from Pablo) kick up the tempo in track ten. It's a short album topping out at nine compositions (including the intro), so the three bonus remixes stretch it out to proper length.

This jazzy lounge album blends seamlessly into one unit of sound without silence between tracks, so it's absolutely ideal for setting ambiance at a little fête or event. It is ideal pool party material, so perhaps this is why the graphics of this album revolve around water. The external shots are big and blue, depicting children floating in a public pool. The album booklet has two-page spreads of young adults relaxing at Iceland's gorgeous geothermal spa Blue Lagoon. Even if you can't say it in Icelandic, Bláa lónið, you can still enjoy the cool beats of Music Tranquilizer. Now, where is my bottle of Wild Cherry Phosphate?

Until I can find it, check out this Youtube video of Kaoru Ono jamming with (Daisuke and Makoto from JABBERLOOP) on the song "Liquid Sky":

"We Believe Jazz has infinite Possibilisty." - JABBERLOOP

What's a Jabberloop you ask? It's Jazz, baby! The five musicians who go by the Star Wars inspires name JABBERLOOP have been playing together since 2004. After a series of Jazz albums in Japan the group just made their North American debut with the November release of "REVENGE of the SPACE MONSTER" through the Daruma Label.

Featuring Daisuke on sax, Melten on keyboard, Yuki on bass, Makoto at trumpet and Yohei banging the drums, JABBERLOOP play a varied Jazz sound to achieve, as they put it, "to make songs that people can hum easily."

On December 14, 2009, the members of JABBERLOOP were kind enough to give an interview to Andrew from J-Pop World. All photos courtesy of JABBERLOOP.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How did the band first get together back in 2004?

We started our career when we played jam sessions at Club Metro in Kyoto.

Were you all into the same type of music at the time?

No, not at all. Rock, funk, jazz etc... We mixed each players taste, and finally JABBERLOOP became a CROSSOVER music band.

What were the first few years together like? What type of places did you play at?

We have performed at clubs and streets everyday.

JABBERLOOP's "REENGE of the SPACE MONSTER" 

By Shay, SparkPlugged


With a band name and album titles like this, don't tell me you're not interested.


Jazz monsters JABBERLOOP invade North America with their U.S. debut, REVENGE of the SPACE MONSTER. There's a handful of bands in Japan intent on proving that jazz doesn't have to be too chill and it's great to see one make themselves available to an international audience. Having released a vinyl EP in the U.K. with Mukatsuku Records, the America is the JABBERLOOP's latest conquest.

US Debut album, REVENGE OF THE SPCE MONSTER.


Jabberloop - Behind The Wind 




Jabberloop is a club jazz band composed of five people (Sax, Trumpet, Keyboard, Bass, Drums). In May 2007, before their debut from a major label, they released a 12 inch EP, UGETSU, from Mukatsuku Records (label owned by Nik Weston). It was featured in a lot of domestic and international media and even in Gilles Peterson's BBC Radio "WORLD WIDE." Their debut album "and infinite jazz..." was released in the same year in Japan. Their music, full of unique vision of the world, has been highly admired in many international areas, and a lot of top DJ such as Gilles Peterson, Juergen (Jazzanova), and Patrick Forge (Da Lata), plays their music. Moreover, in Japan, they won the "ADLIB AWARDS 2007 Domestic Club Dance Prize" (ADLIB magazine). In July 2008, they released a collection / compilation album of the works they have featured in one year, which reveals everything of JABBERLOOP. It includes the songs that they have produced to other artists, remixed, some popular tunes from their debut album, and the greatest appeal is the inclusion of the live reconstructed ver., which gives a  "real" live feeling to the listeners. Including their music offer to other artists, as well as producing and remixing various artists' music, JABBERLOOP's "infinite" musical expression continues to evolve with no end to it.
