"Recorded in New Zealand in 2004, is the duo recording of New Zealand guitarist Donald McPherson and Japanese guitarist Tetuzi Akiyama. A beautiful meeting of 2 virtuoso acoustic guitarists, both thoroughly schooled in the vast world of improvising. Donald McPherson, a native New Zealander has been playing the guitar since the tender age of 12, he studied at the Otago Art School in the 80s and in the 90s he released a number of extremely limited lathe-cut folk records. Tetuzi Akiyama is often associated with the improvising community in Tokyo generated around Tokyos Off Site venue. But to Tetuzis sound owes just as much to the country blues guitarists of the 30s. His sound has taken the blues form into a new world of minimalist improvisations. His loose playing side steps the usual clichés of the guitar in both the free improv and traditional folk scenes. Tetuzi has a varied number of very different projects from free improvisations, working with musicians across the globe, to hard minimalist electric blues boogies, a startling example can be found on Idea Records Dont Forget To Boogie LP and Headz live CD version. This record finds Tetuzi and Donald playing melodic folk improvisations that grow and morph into compositions that on each listening uncover some new layer of beauty. Both playing on acoustic guitar, they have a level of communication and understanding of each others playing, that allows a musical connection to grow and blossom into a full-length recording of delicate melodic mayhem. And the CD is limited to 1000, there are two extra tracks on the CD that do not appear on the vinyl version." First CD on BoWeavil; LP version is coming out later..." - Bo Weavil.
