JAZZ | Tatsuya Nakatani


Tatsuya Nakatani creates soundscapes unlike anything you've ever heard. A master percussionist, he employs many traditional drums, cymbals, gongs, etc., but he rarely uses them in a traditional manner. Nakatani wields his hand-crafted Kobo bow, playing the gong like a circular, metal, avant-garde cello. The range of sounds he coaxes is nothing short of otherworldly.

Tatsuya Nakatani plays Tuesday, May 29, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $15 door; $10 students. 271-3354;;
