Tsahar, Assif & Tatsuya Nakatani
I Got It Bad

Tsahar, Assif & Tatsuya Nakatani: I Got It Bad (Hopscotch Records)
Label: Hopscotch Records    
Released in: USA    

"The third release for the collaboration of Assif and Tatsuya, each one is titled after a different Ellington's composition and on this one it is "I got it bad" which gets it's invocation betweens Tatsuya's bells and Assif's deep and dark tenor. What sets the tone for a mystical journey of 20 tracks full of moods fitting of a Tarkovsky film sound track. The two match tone colors and overtones with breaths of angular intervals to create a beautifully strange soundscape."-Hopscotch
