On the surface, a set of country and western covers from Doc Chad and percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani, but underneath: complex and demanding playing with detailed free improvisation.
Chadbourne, Eugene & Tatsuya Nakatani
Bigger Country Boobs
Released in: USA
"Bigger Country Boobs, a collection of cover versions of songs by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Roger Miller and others, was released March 6 by Chadbourne's House of Chadula imprint. Chadbourne and Nakatani recorded the CD at the Greensboro Psychad Studio in early 2011.
Chadbourne's first album of so-called 'free improvised country and western bebop' was issued in 1980. This introduced the listening public to his vocal stylings, as previous releases beginning with 'Volume One Solo Acoustic Guitar' in 1975 had been entirely instrumental affairs.
Percussionist Nakatani, of Japanese descent but now living permanently in Easton, Pennsylvania, is known for his unique solo percussion shows, often presented on epic cross-country tours. He has developed a philosophy of healthy touring that is becoming both a philosophical as well as business model for the discipline of live performing in economies that are increasingly tilted against the arts and non-mainstream activity in general.
Nakatani makes a fine combination with Chadbourne, whose relentless national and international touring efforts have resulted in performances in almost every part of the USA as well as 28 countries-at last count!"-Chadula
