Stream Tetuzi Akiyama

Pleased to have dug this out the archives and mastered. Akiyama's solo guitar is focused "on the tone and wildness of the instrument." A hard rock fan at 11 years-old, Akiyama started playing electric guitar at the age of 13. Later, with a growing interest in free improvisation and classical music, Akiyama sought to create his own genre "solo rock guitar." A treat to have him play in the early days of OTO. 

You can buy this track, and his half hour long solo from the opening night here.

Thanks to Tetuzi, John Chantler for the recordings, Toshimaru Nakamura for mastering and Lee Etherington.
