Kan Mikami / John Edwards / Alex Nielson
Live at Cafe Oto
Kan Mikami is sometimes simplistically portrayed as the Japanese Bob Dylan, but he’s been an important figure in his homeland since the 70s. International renown has perhaps been limited by the language barrier versus his musically sparse, lyric-heavy songs. However that’s less of an issue here, where he’s joined by drummer Alex Nielson and bassist John Edwards for some fiery and volatile improv, recorded in Cafe OTO and released by their archival label. On LP and CD, both limited to 500 copies.
