Jah Wobble & the Nippon Dub Ensemble: Japanese Dub
David Hutcheon

The second in a triptych of playful interpretations of Far Eastern folk music (China Dub was released two years ago, Korea Dub is due in 2011) finds the bass player and friends immersed in Kurosawa, kabuki and the samurai code. With Wobble prowling the bottom end, the album’s stars are the singing percussionist Joji Hirota and Keiko Kitamura on shamisen (a banjo in other hands) yet their leader suggests the key thing here is the space between the notes. Very Zen and dub.
