Ace Yamashita, Guitar
Yamashita gives a solo guitar performance where he mixes his sensitive style of Western playing with aural images of the Orient. it is a totally improvised session that finds him in a reflective, introspective mood. No titles are provided, but each selection is an intricate investigation into the soul of the songs and the man. He alters the course by playing in either single tone fragments or full clusters of notes. You get the feeling that Yamashita is sinking deeply into the bowels of the tunes, caught in an eddy and swirling around with the notes that are spinning in his brain. The pace is not galloping, allowing Yamashita to be tender and emotive while he contemplates the direction of the tunes.
