Fields, Scott & Jeffrey Lependorf: Everything is in the instructions (Ayler)
Label: Ayler    
Released in: Sweden    

"Scott Fields is a leading guitarist and composer in avant-jazz and New Music. Jeffrey Lependorf is a composer of contemporary chamber music and opera. He is also a certified master of the shakuhachi, a traditional Japanese bamboo flute, and has helped create a new repertoire of music for this ancient instrument. In Everything is in the Instructions, they perform new works for guitar and shakuhachi that combine written and improvised material. Don't look for anything related to so-called 'world music' or some new agey concept here. This is the exciting combination of two major musical personalities, and definitely music for the 21st century, where sound, silence and structures are masterly entwined to create something entirely new and original."-Ayler Records
