 これまでも幾度かソイル・アンド・ピンプ・セッションズのライヴは体験しているんだが、昔からのジャズ・ファンが彼らをどう見ているのか、実に興味深い。おそらく、音だけを聞いていたら、それほどの脅威は感じないんだろうが、ライヴを見たら卒倒するかもしれないとも思えるのだ。なにせ、彼らのライヴは、実に「ジャズらしくない」。というよりは、そんな旧来のジャズのイメージを完全にぶっ壊すパンクであり、さらに、それを飛び越えてヘヴィメタ・ジャズと呼んでもいいのではないかと思えるほどの迫力を持ているのだ。だからなんだろう、これほどまでにハードにドライヴするジャズがなんの違和感もなく、若い世代に受け入れられているのだろう。

 どこかでコルトレインにモンクやアイラーも突き抜けて、さらにはザ・クラッシュも飛び抜けて、メタリカをも遙か後方に残して突っ走る短距離走者のような趣もあるのが彼らの演奏。彼らがジャズの歴史を完膚無きまでに変えてしまっていることは、誰にも異論はないだろう。なにせ、ジャズのライヴでこれほどの熱狂を生み出したバンドなど、誰も思いつかないのだ。当然ながら、旧態依然としたジャズ・ファンが彼らを認めることはないだろうし、「こんなのジャズじゃない」と言う人がほとんどかもしれない。でも、かつて偉大なるマイルスが口にしたように、そんなときには「So What?」(だから、なんだよ?)と言い返してやればいいように思う。いやぁ、面白い。
