'Over The Top' is a remarkable and interesting duo recording by two outstanding Japanese artists. The acoustic guitarist Aki and the koto virtuoso Kuniko join together for an intimate dialog that shuttles between traditional Japanese sounds and new, abstract tonalities.
This enthralling CD contains a mix of studio recordings and live segments. It makes an impressive case for the melodic and rhythmic meshing of the koto and steelstring guitar. For many, this combination of instruments may appear culturally incompatible at first glance. But once you hear the CD, all doubts will be cast off:
Everything here fits perfectly.
