Akira Sakata, legendary Japanese jazz musician since the early 70s (Yosuke Yamashita Trio, Akira Sakata Trio) and ocean-biologist, tours and records with The Thing, Jim O'Rourke, Bill Laswell, Merzbow, Chikamorachi, etc.

The TALE OF THE HEIKE is an intense solo-performance that we can happily release on vinyl for the first time! For the vinyl version some dvd-pieces (8-11) from the live-performance as an ensemble were used as bonus-tracks Sakatas current band ARASHI (with Johan Berthling and Paal Nilssen-Love) will release their second studio album this spring, as well on trost records.
