Dear US customers, "Iruman" is now available at one of NY's finest stores, DMG.
Here's what store manager Bruce Lee Gallanter says about it: "I had a conversation with Henry Kaiser a few weeks ago about a trip
he had to Japan and playing [with] Haino Keiji and Akira Sakata at two
different gigs. He mentioned that playing with Mr. Sakata was an
incredible experience, one of his favorite sets in recent memory. This
is what Kaiser has to say, "Sakata is one of the greatest individual
stylists of the alto sax; he is one of the few in a class with Ornette
Coleman or Jimmy Lyons. He can also play both more lyrically and more
out, at the same time, than just about anyone else that I can think of."
I've listened to this CD several times this week and believe it is one
of the finest improvised duos I've heard in a long while. There is
something magical about this that I can't really put my finger on but it
truly touches me".
As reviewed on The Wire magazine's new issue:
"... songs which turn the gushing emotional expressivity of free jazz
back in on itself, which put a break on its up and out trajectory in
order to access something close to illumination" (Tony Herrington)
