KAORU ABE / YOSHISABURO TOYOZUMI DUO - LIVE AT GAYA (DIW, 1995)





Two of the greats of Japanese free improvisation. This was recorded during the same period as Overhang Party (Alm Records, still available on CD) and Overhang Party / Senzei (Qbico), unfortunately during the last year of Abe's life. Sabu is still very much with us and making some great music. This duo recording was only released as a bonus CD to Abe's solo box set. 

1. Duo Improvisation 27:23, 25 November 1977

2. Duo Improvisation 26:14, 26 March 1978


Kaoru Abe, alto saxophone

Yoshisaburo (Sabu) Toyozumi, drums


Recorded live at Gaya, Hatsudai, Tokyo.


CD rip, DIW Records, DIWS-2.

Nord is still in print as a CD on Alm Records, Igor. You can get it from japanimprov.

Do you have any idea what the relationship of this recording is to this set, apparently from the same date?
