LITTLE TEMPOが11年ぶりに満を持して放つフルアルバム「LOVE MAX」は、熟練音楽職人9人の知を結集したオーガニックサウンド。まさにインストレゲエの金字塔ともいえる本作は、混迷の世から暫し離れた53分間の至高の音楽旅行を約束いたします!
練りに練り上げた珠玉のオリジナル10曲と、世界のレゲエファン待望の「Wichita Lineman」の超メロウカバーを収録(CDのみ)。 どの瞬間を切り取っても優雅にして緻密、かつ果てしなく立体的な音像は聴くたびに表情を変える3Dの万華鏡さながらです!


国内外でジャンルを問わず活躍する鉄壁の演奏陣をはじめ、今やアジアを代表するエンジニア内田直之、そして稀代のメロディメーカー土生剛の作曲センスはもちろん健在そのもの。 大野由美子(Buffalo Daughter)を迎えた「Starlight Serenade」は新たなるファンデーションを予感させ、アルバムタイトル曲「LOVE MAX」で成し得た唯一無二のスタイルは、各メンバーのステディで革新的な生き様が色濃く反映されています。
マスタリングは英国Alchemy MasteringのBarry Grint氏に依頼し、内田渾身のMIXを圧倒的な音像に昇華させました。またCDプレスは国内最高音質と名高いSONYと、盤自体のクオリティもとことん追求。

結成30年にしてたどり着いたマウントザイオン「LOVE MAX」は、間違いなく数十年後も輝き続けるレガシィとなるでしょう♡

LITTLE TEMPO's first full length album in 11 years, "LOVE MAX" is an organic sound that brings together the knowledge of nine skilled music craftsmen. This album is truly a milestone in instrumental reggae, and promises a supreme 53-minute musical journey away from the chaos of the world!
Included are 10 well-crafted original gems and a super mellow cover of "Wichita Lineman" (CD only), long-awaited by reggae fans around the world. Every moment is graceful and precise, and the endlessly three-dimensional soundscape is like a 3D kaleidoscope that changes its expression every time you listens to it!

We were able to focus so much on quality because of the diversity of the nine members, all of whom are rich in individuality.
The band's performers active in Japan and abroad regardless of genre, Naoyuki Uchida, now one of Asia's leading engineers, and the rare melody maker Takeshi”TICO”Toki's sense of composition are, of course, very much intact. "Starlight Serenade" with Yumiko Ohno (Buffalo Daughter) promises a new foundation, and the one-of-a-kind style achieved in the album's title track "Love Max" reflects the steady and innovative way of life of each member.
Mastering was entrusted to Barry Grint of Alchemy Mastering in the U.K., and Uchida's mixes were elevated to an overwhelming sound image. The CD and Vinyl pressing was conducted by SONY, renowned for the best sound quality in Japan, and the quality of the disc itself was also thoroughly pursued. Mount Zion's "LOVE MAX," which was created 30 years after the formation of the group, will surely be a legacy that will continue to shine for decades to come.
