I’ve been following Japanese drummer Tatsuya Yoshida for quite a while now and few of his (many) projects are as intriguing to me as SAXRUINS. His drumming combined with the multi-tracked sax stylings of Ono Ryoko is an astounding thing to hear. Simply imagining the work that went into a single person recording all the sax tracks on this album is, uh, daunting. So much detail!

On a practical level, Ono Ryoko’s sax arrangements give a more open feel to Yoshida’s compositions. As if Frank Zappa had been run over by the Magma tour bus with John Zorn at the wheel.
