About fusion, we generally think of the music which has developed from electric jazz. And we tend to guess that the opposite means acoustic jazz or unplugged jazz. Listening to Hands of GUIDO; Salt's studio album published in 2006, we can know the idea is strictly an error, however.

By the way, Salt means Shionoya Satoru, a Japanese male pianist.

Like an idea which says peace is a contrast to war, we prone to lose the true nature of things in our daily times, and we are often seized with misunderstanding. Panic is an opposite word of peace and a contrast of war means negotiating, by way of caution. His Hands of GUIDO softly comforts our silliness and smartly remonstrates.

Salt released Hands of GUIDO after an interval of five years. This album, whose theme is future jazz, is together produced by Tanaka Yoshito. It looks their plays and brains were truly essential to getting to make the album.

They performed their originals songs interlacing Yesterday; a cover of the Beatles. Salt played piano sometimes gently, and other times aggressively. It sounds like splendid fusion. But that is not all. Probably because of remarkable sounds from wood bass played by Hirayama Katsumi, we silently feel sort of acoustic when they played electric, kind of club music. It surely sounds novel and somehow fantastic.

Electrified sounds cohabit with the unplugged. Salt tenderly tells us what we think the two originally ran counter each other might be a misunderstood thing, with Hands of GUIDO.
