English living legend percussionist, Roger Turner plays in Japan last year and this is one of the live performance in Tokyo. Roger's feathery and dynamic percussion playing and Otomo Yoshihide's noisy electric guitar playing.
An improv meeting of two masters with very different but equally impressive histories. Across two long tracks they give an object lesson in the art of duo improvisation, a format in which both players are constantly exposed with no easy place to hide, although that clearly holds no fear for either Turner or Otomo. Turner and Yoshihide are old hands, veterans even, and this is not their first foray into free improv by a long shot. The resulting moments on Live at SuperDeluxe where the music of either or both players recedes are fascinating, even captivating, glimpses of two musicians sounding each other out and intuitively plotting where they’ll go next.
