Masayuki Takayanagi

Here are two albums from the brilliant, yet slightly deranged, Masayuki Takayanagi. Equal parts free jazz and noise, I guess you could just call it free improvisation but who cares.

Characterised by large amounts of distortion and feedback, Masayuki's style is fierce, to say the least. He brings an intensity to the guitar that few can claim to match; certainly not in jazz circles, and probably not many other styles either. He certainly succeeded in finding his own voice.
