With "Nipponized" [re:jazz] present what is already their fourth studio album on INFRACom! and Twiggy Twiggy is the first single release with a remix by the almighty DYNAMICS Crew from Lyon.

Finding the basic idea - that magic spark, was very difficult for [re:jazz] on this one. But with re:jazz a thought-experiment often helps : Twiggy twiggy from Pizicato 5 is not an original, rather a cover. How would the jazz original sound? From what time period would it come? Then the idea hit them: Lee Morgan! Sidewinder! Together with Twiggy Twiggy thats exactly what's happening here. Uptight and with a wink of the eye.

It was a great honor and pleasure for [re:jazz] that they were able to win over well know Japanese jazz singer akiko for the recording of "Twiggy Twiggy". akiko is the first Japanese female singer to release on VERVE (Universal Japan) and has put out more than 6 studio albums there since 2001. Yasuharu Konishi the founding member of Pizzicato Five, who currently works closely with akiko was also in the studio to supervise akiko's vocal arrangement.

With the Dynamics [re:jazz ] found the perfect remixer for this tune as the crew from Lyon does something very similar with their soul/reggae cover versions as [re:jazz |does in the jazz field.
Patchwork and Dapper Ray aka Mr. Day from The Dynamics are familiar names to INFRACom! listeners anyway, as they are the heads behind the Metropolitan Jazz Affair project on INFRACom! too. So no need to say that they were jumping up and down when they heard the [re:jazz] version in August this year during a sunny sunday morning coffee break all together joined at the INFRACom! Headquarter. Here is the result...summer is endless.
