Last week Saxophonist Akira Sakata (76) performed at his old school in Hiroshima, the city of his birth and where he saw John Coltrane play in 1966. The encounter inspired him to study marine biology at University before moving to Tokyo, playing for the likes of Shuji Terayama, and much on, later played with Chris Cosey from Throbbing Gristle. His latest record is a recording from 1986 of him playing with legendary drummer Takeo Moriyama and was release earlier this year. It was mixed by Jim O’Rourke and mastered by Martin Siewert of Austrian band Radian.
