Michijo Yagi  – koto
Paal Nilssen-Love – drums
Ingebrigt Håker Flaten  – bass

This album was recorded in Tokyo at the club “Super Deluxe” while me and Paal were in town playing some gigs with Atomic in 2004. While Michiyo is a traditionally schooled Koto player in Japan she is also a one of a kind improviser-and on such an instrument. The sounds she gets out of her Koto’s (she had a bass-koto built for her) are astounding! This recording is a great document of a very unusual improvised meeting. I enjoyed it a lot!!
