Takuro Okada: The Lagniappe Sessions @ Aquarium Drunkard

Japanese experimental guitarist Takuro Okada recorded two covers for Aquarium Drunkard's The Lagniappe Sessions: Don Cherry's Brown Rice (MP3) and Haruomi Hosono's Kadoma (MP3). He played prepared guitar and synths, and was accompanied by Junya Ohkubo (alto sax), Shun Ishiwaka (drums), and Kazuhiko Masumura (percussion). About the importance of Don Cherry:

You can feel the beat of the African drums, hear the oriental scales and moods of Southeast Asia, and the original ensemble is very American jazz-like, so many musical contexts can be heard in this piece. Putting that aside, despite the experimental nature of the piece, the magic melody is somehow familiar.
