Aoki, Tatsu – “Basser Live ” – [Asianimprov Records]
Recorded live at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art in May of 1998, BASSER LIVE is Tatsu Aoki’s seventh album of solo bass improvisations. And by the sounds on this album, there’s still plenty of exploration going on within those narrow confines. Of the eight long tracks here, two are augmented by Asian percussion (“Wed Lock” and “Fisherman’s Song”), and one is an arrangement of a Japanese pop song (“Sukiyaki”). Complex rhythms and funkiness abound. Though some of the tracks may go on a bit too long, Aoki is obviously having a good time, and you will too.
