SHIRAISHI, TAMIO & SEAN MEEHAN - Summer Concerts
180-gram vinyl LP edition of 510 in silkscreened jackets with art by Knickerbocker. A co-release with GD Stereo.\r\nWhen I first heard Tamio Shiraishi, I wanted to blow my eyes out. The opening burst of sheer overpowering SOUND of his sax on the Our Lips Are Sealed" CD on Pure was all I needed to hear to know that I had to (a) get my hands on all his music, and (b) get a saxophone myself and have at it. Years later, here I am still trying, and there Shiraishi is cracking concrete and splitting bridges in half in New York City with his trusty horn. A follow up to the Fusetron one-sided 12", this 180 gram vinyl is a full length capturing two Summer concerts that Shiraishi and percussionist/artist/thinker/time traveler Sean Meehan put on every year in the Big Apple. I wasnt there, but Geoff Dugan was and recorded them for the rest of us poor saps. A third player should be given credit here, too, as the landscapes the duo chose for venues are just as much a part of the recording as the instruments played. The Manhattan Bridge and the municipal garage on 79th Street cradled, amplify, defy and deflect Shiraishi and Meehan. The passing traffic and trains make it a quartet. As for Meehan, I have no idea what hes doing. But its a damn fine thing whatever it is. Eat it up." - Marshall Avett, Old Gold. Highly Recommended!
