Duke Aces is a Japanese jazz chorus group that was formed in 1955 and had been active ever since. However, the group has announced that they will officially end their activities at the end of 2017. Konishi Yasuharu had collaborated twice with them, and he is releasing those songs on 7" to coincide with their 62-year career's curtain call.
Included are a cover of Pizzicato Five's "atarashii uta" ("A New Song") which was released on tribute album "music and words of pizzicato five" (2002), and a remixed cover of "tetsuwan Atom" (Astro Boy theme song) that was part of the "Atom is born" Astro Boy tribute album released in 2003.
