Following his last appearance in London with Keith Rowe and Eddie Prévost a couple of years ago, Ongaku:enjoy_sound are very pleased to be able to present Tetuzi Akiyama ("challenging for the title of most interesting guitarist on the planet" - The Wire) again in a further programme of his music, on 13th October in London for another unique concert.
He will play on the night in two new trios, and also perform solo. Ongaku collaborators Nathaniel Catchpole and Ross Lambert ("extraordinary" - The Wire) have both played with Tetuzi in Tokyo, and it's a simple pleasure for now them to return this favour.
The evening will also feature world-renowned saxophonist John Butcher, in a trio with Lambert and Akiyama. Butcher (www.johnbutcher.org.uk/ ) has not played with either musician before. His latest appearance at Ongaku has just been released on the double CD 'horn_bill' (Matchless).
Catchpole, also featured on 'horn_bill', will play with Akiyama and Sebastian Lexer. Sebastian runs the successful 'Interlace' concert series at Goldsmiths, and is a colleague of Nat and Ross in the group 9! and on Resonance 104.4FM's 'Coin on the Track', as well as having a longstanding association with John Tilbury.
Tetuzi's solo boogie playing reached wide attention on the vinyl only Don't Forget to Boogie "...a straight solo performance of riffs, licks and grease that would make Billy Gibbons jealous and European festival organizers scratch their heads in bewilderment." (pitchfork).
This promises to be a very special concert.
