From free jazz duo with Motoki Takagi and Ryuichi Sakamoto, to sessions with Milford Graves and Derek Bailey, to reconstructing and playing instruments from the Jomon and Yayoi periods, Toshiyuki Tsuchitori has always pursued his own unique style of music. This album was released in 1980, and produced during the period when he was based in New York. The three tracks on the A-side and B2 are solo drum/percussion improvisations recorded at Soundscape in New York in July 1980. B1 is an African drum ensemble recorded in Nigeria in 1978 with local musicians. Both are wonderful performances, where the energy of the most primal impulses reverberates through the cells.
This is a unopened archive copy and will be given as is. Please note that due to the prolonged tightening of the shrink wrapping, there may be some distortion and paper rubbing on the vinyl.
