A as "Alviverde"



In passing
... for the sunny days which are floating around, one of my personal hits for a long time. 

"Alviverde" is a brilliant  composition by Jun Miyake, with the smooth and voluptuous Arto Lindsay' voice, issued from "Stolen From Strangers" published in 2007.
Just enjoy!

A guitar duet



free improvisation, sonic experience, mechanical hiccups hiding pulsating drifts,
psychedelic thunderbolts and rough spaces

¨¨¨

Jean-François Pauvros & Jean-Marc Montera,
live at Instants Chavirés (Montreuil) in april 2018

A drums' solo



On the creditable video channel of NiloNilaz
which is a memory of lots of artists who performed in Paris, 
you can find captures of recent concerts as well this great one:

a splendid drums' solo by Ikuro Takahashi
a central member of the japanese psychedelic underground from the eighties.
Unforgetable!

don't miss the second part (6'48" to 15'17") of this live performance!
and listen it LOUD! 




this same night of May at "Instants Chavirés" (Paris)
a brilliant duo with Otomo Yoshihide and the sax player Chris Pitsiokos
To see and listen here
