Tatsuya Nakatani with Assif Tsahar
Both are story-tellers of a different nature, but the interaction is excellent – the free jazz collective
The two opt for minimal means to create music. Just a few meditative blows, colorful touches, poetic spirit, telepathic communication and a playful sense of adventure. Fascinating music, rich with imagination, colors and trust. – All about Jazz
The duo of Assif Tsahar and Tatsuya Nakatani started 13 years ago getting together once a week every sunday to play in Astor place, downtown Manhattan. After producing three CD’s and stopping their weekly meeting, they continue nonetheless their collaboration. After years of playing together, their musical interactions are telepathic and mystical. Tsahar makes use of extended techniques on his horn and switches occasionally from the tenor to the bass clarinet, astute in the use of dynamics contributing to the diversity of the performance. Nakatani makes use of a panoply of percussive equipment, from full drum kit to hand drums, bells, bowed cymbals, or wood blocks. The duo uses minimalism but makes full use of the range of the instruments in sensitive and passionate playing, making this a captivating musical experience.
