Contemporary jazz trio Fox Capture Plan have returned with a brand-new full-length, Capturism.
On it, the Japanese outfit—comprising Ryo Kishimoto on piano, Hidehiro Kawai on double bass and Tsukasa Inoue on drums—do what they do best: fuse jazz with pop and post-rock. The instrumental album features ten tracks worth of spellbinding contemporary jazz pieces that boast infectious pop melodies and funky grooves.
But in-between original cuts, there’s one song that stands out. It’s “Because of You,” the ninth track on the record, which hears the band putting their own spin on Ne-Yo’s 2007 R&B smash. It’s no surprise, though, considering the group’s knack for covers. In 2015, Fox Capture Plan released COVERMIND, a compilation album that featured jazzy renditions of Oasis, Green Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more.
