The late Masayuki Takayanagi started in the 50's as an active improviser in the Japanese scene, working with his own New Directions trio, Three Blind Mice, April is the Cruelest Month, and Axis Another Revolvable Thing. He also was one of Japan's earliest noise guitar improvisers. He worked with Keith Rowe, John Zorn, and Abe Kaoru, amongst countless others. This recording of Axis is from a concert at Tokyo's Yasuda Seimei Hall in 1975.

Artist Biographies:

"Nobuyoshi Ino (born March 26, 1950, Gunma) is a Japanese jazz double-bassist.

Ino began playing professionally in the early 1970s, and worked in that decade with Motohiko Hino, Terumasa Hino, Kosuke Mine, Akira Miyazawa, Masahiko Sato, Isao Suzuki, Hidefumi Toki, and Kazumi Watanabe. Early in the 1980s he played with Masayuki Takayanagi and Aki Takase, then formed a duo with Lester Bowie, performing from 1984 to 1988 (including on the 1985 album Duet). He also worked with Alex Schlippenbach and Sunny Murray in a trio setting and toured with Elvin Jones. He founded an ensemble called Four Sounds in 1989 which featured Kosuke Mine, Fumio Itabashi, and Hiroshi Murakami as sidemen. Later in his career he worked with Masahiko Togashi as well as with Aki Takase once more."
