Trio consiting of Yoko Yoko Tada (alto sax, bass clarinet, melodion, vocals), Kanji Nakao (soprano sax, clarinet, trombone) and Takero Sekizima (tuba, alto recorder). All three are veterans of the Japanese underground/improv scene, playing with groups such as Katsura Mazurka, Cosmopolitan Cowboys, Compostela, Strada, Cicala Mvta, Kuricorder Quartet and many others.They've been playing together since 2005 and have come up with an album of mostly original tracks, plus improvisations, a Sidney Bechet tune and a Turkish traditional piece. Fantastic musicianship, strange yet accessible, sometimes melancholic, sometimes joyous, always intriguing. Listen to samples of all tracks.
