random notes

the following was taken from the zorn-list: "..With all the top 10 talk, I've started on another cycle through the Japan Improv set, and I was very impressed today with Disk 8, which is all koto and shamisen. One of the koto players is Michiyo Yagi, and as I perused the japan improv web site, I see that she has an album on Tzadik. Anyone heard this? Any comments? A short trawl through her discography reveals a group called Kokoo, two koto and one shakuhachi. One of their albums (http://www.japanimprov.com/indies/sevenseas/supernova.html) contains songs by Hendrix, Led Zep, Zappa (Peaches en Regalia!), Pink Floyd (One of these Days) and the Beatles. Anyone heard *this*? Those of you who collect cover versions may wanna check it out.
