A scarcely credible tour de force of speed and precision in the service of complex, rapidly changing, additive-rhythm-rich compositions performed by Tatsuya Yoshida (drums) and Ryoko Ono (many saxophones, in layers) like nothing else by anyone. No fat, 20 ideas a minute and a bit faster than you can think, it’s a record probably best taken in sections; musicianship and technique of stratospheric competence married to high energy, this is inventive and wholly non-technical music full of pleasure and intent. Fiendish, fun, and definitely life-affirming. Highly recommended.
Tatsuya Yoshida: drums, percussion
Ryoko Ono: alto, baritone & soprano sax, flute
Recorded in Koenji & Nagoya
between December 2012 and August 2013
