Masayoshi Urabe: What Hasn't Come Here, COME! CD
"Often compared to Japan's other harrowing, insistent solo performer Kaoru Abe, the pair do show similarities in "style" as well as instruments deployed (sax, harmonica, sometimes guitar), but their performance modus differs greatly. Where Abe tended to stand still and squeeze out rusty blasts of music shards, Urabe places strangled blasts and short, melodic fragments into a framework of near silence.
Long stretches of it. ... Here we are provided only with Urabe's sparse but intense sax, harmonica and chains (!), with the added occasional vocal interjection. It's puzzling at first, but sink in and you'll soon be taken on a harrowing ride. ... Consider this then a postcard from the subtle realm where complete commitment meets shades of madness in a near silent space. A small whirlwind in a box."
