Akira Sakata & Giovanni Di Domenico "Iruman" (now available through Downtown Music Gallery)

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".
