Mujitsu Taimu shakuhachi
are featured exclusively on a new album "Taimu" by Brian Tairaku
Ritchie and Shakuhachi Club Milwaukee. Joining SCM are hightly original
percussionist John Sparrow and upright bass wiz Dave Gelting.
Together, they create a cohesive blend of jazz, blues, traditional
Japanese Honkyoku and improvisation.
Taimu Shakuhachi are the
current result of my longtime maker/player collaboration
with Brian Tairaku Ritchie. The name was formed by combining Brian's
professional nameTairaku with my shakuhachi making
name Mujitsu. Translated, Taimu means The Big Nothing.
From the beginning of this collaboration, it has been clear that there
is something special about wide bore shakuhachi. The complex,
expressively raw tone possible with these flutes is very different than
the focused, pure tone of modern, thinner bore shakuhachi. Much of the
development of Taimu Shakuhachi centers on expanding this complex tone
while maintaining a musically sound instrument. This recording is an
effort to introduce the many possibilities of this unique style of
list for "Taimu"
