My appreciation for Kang Tae Hwan should be clear to all who followed my posts since I was invited in September 2010.
Kazuhisha Uchihashi has played with a lot of musicians from Europe (Bailey, Brötzmann, Roger Turner) but also with Leo Smith, Barre Phillips, Otomo Yoshihide and Elliott Sharp.
You'll find a good profile here.
Ichiraku Yoshimitsu isn't as popular as Uchihashi (in the western hemisphere) - but his CV is as impressive as Uchihashi's > George Lewis, Otomo Yoshihide, Sachiko M and Korean trumpet-player Choi Sun Bae a.o.
Take a look for his profile there.
This post is a request by Nick which I happily oblige!
IMPORTANT _ Please give me some feedback wether the links are available again! (16.01.2013)
