ARASHI, JOHAN BERTHLING, PAAL NILSSEN-LOVE & AKIRA SAKATA – s/t

TROST | TR130 | CD / LP

Akira Sakata: alto saxophone, clarinet, voice
Johan Berthling: double bass
Paal Nilssen-Love: drums & percussion


This is a trio of like-minded, fearless musicians who like their music hot, steamy and climatic and would not settle for less than that.
Eyal Hareuven, All About Jazz

On this album you can hear what a champion Akira Sakata is on the alto saxophone, his main instrument. This is classic high energy free jazz on an absolute top level, it seems as if all the three players have gone completely mad and angry. It is a relentless force of nature coming over you, it is –literally – a storm.

This is a superb set, a rounded performance, satisfyingly intense and perfectly moderated. The trio’s sound has been beautifully captured
