Alan Silva, Keiko Higuchi, Sabu Toyozumi, Takuo Tanikawa, "Crimson Lip" (Free Download of Excerpts)
Bassist, composer, keyboardist, avant garde giant Alan Silva joins with Keiko Higuchi (vocals), Sabu Toyozumi (drums and percussion), Takuo Tanikawa (electric guitar and electronics) in a live performance from Yokahama in the album Crimson Lip (Improvising Beings). The performers have generously provided a 13 minute set of excerpts from the album, which you can stream or download from this page.
Judging from these lively snippets, there are some beautiful interactions between acoustics, electronics and vocals. I won't further comment at this point, not having heard the full album. Sounds very interesting though!
