Ron Zacapa presents DCPRG

Two years after reconvening prog-jazz-fusion ensemble Date Course Pentagon Royal Garden with an almost completely new lineup, Naruyoshi Kikuchi has reached a new level of credibility: he's snagged a deal with prestigious jazz label Impulse! Records. Last month, DCPRG (as they're now known) released their first studio album on the label, following on from last September's Alter War in Tokyo live album. Second Report from Iron Mountain USA is a successor of sorts to their 2001 debut, even kicking off with the same piece, 'Catch 22' – this time in a new version featuring rappers Jazz Dommunisters and Vocaloid singer (yes, you read that correctly) Tone Rion. Get a taste when DCPRG hit Studio Coast for the obligatory album release gig, supported by one of Kikuchi's students, Eiji Hishida aka Killer Smells.
