Kaoru Abe

When I started with American free jazz artists, I thought it was intense. Then when I heard Brotzmann, Evan Parker and other Europeans, I was shown once again the power of the sax to absolutely destroy my comfort zone.

So it was with great pain/pleasure, that I found this drug addled Japanese man, playing the sax as if his very life was at stake.

Here are two of his fantastic solo albums:

Plenty of his stuff can be found on youtube. Also expect some posts later on of his work with Masayuki Takayanagi.
