The tsugaru shamisen is a three stringed japanese lute that sounds reminisceint of a banjo. Michihiro is a master and being of the younger generation of players has chosen the path of improv. All the tracks on here are great. While I found it a bit difficult to listen all the way through (the banjo-ness wore on me) there are many enjoyable tracks here. My picks are the ones that feature Christian Marclay.
