The Wife of Seishû Hanaoka is set in feudal Japan. Its two central characters are based on the wife and mother of Japanese physician Seishû Hanaoka (1760-1835). Hanaoka developed a herbal general anaesthetic, "Tsusensan", some forty years before the better-known innovations of his American counterparts Long, Wells and Morton. Hanaoka performed the world's first mastectomy under general anaesthesia in October 1804. His disciples and trainees continued the surgical tradition he founded after his death. The neglected wife of Seishû Hanaoka, who is doing research on general anesthesia, chooses to become his guinea pig in order to get his further attention.
TheHeckler is a quartet influenced by contemporary urban jazz sounds found manly at the New York and Barcelonas underground. Present-day jazz in which youll hear music elements from pop-rock, new-bop and free jazz; elements always treated with the acoustic format, a way to guarantee a very jazzy sound.
Their first album, called Heckler City, its a compacted project. It was thought from its beginning to fit the bands formation and with clear references to the notion of city. It smells like city. It builds heavy atmospheres, maybe humid, a bit dark, autumn style. The album and the entire quartet project remind us of a capital city. Big cities with thousand of stories that, as flash of light, appear and disappear without leaving trace they are jus too many.
