Another gem from Kang Tae Hwan. Here he collaborates with two master musicians from Japan.

This recording was initiated by Teruto Soejima. He's together with Aquirax Aida (1946 - 1978) the most prolific critic and organiser/promoter of the japanese Free Jazz scene.
He also wrote the seminal book about japanese Free Jazz - Nihon Free Jazz-shi [The History of Japanese Free Jazz] - sadly only in japanese language. He has organized such events as the 14-day Free Jazz festival "Inspiration and Power" (in 1974 and 1976) etc.

Another great album! There's been a continuous barrage of most amazing musics for a couple of months now. I'm barely keeping up with it. Kang Tae Hwan was a recent major discovery for me, thanks to Onxidlib. Since i first heard him a couple of weeks ago, I've been frantically trying to hunt down every album that bears his name.
Thanks a lot for "Asian Spirits"! Another treasure from your seemingly inexhaustible trove.
