Tokyo's Ryo Takematsu proves the universality and timelessness
of the blues on his debut solo release 'Six-O-Seven Blues'.
Recorded mainly in a Japanese bedroom, Takematsu's heartfelt
and sincere acoustic guitar playing filters his love of pre-war
American country blues through the more relatively recent
influences of John Fahey and Backwards Sam Firk; the seven
pieces here, on three 7" records, slingshot these influences through space and time, from America in a previous century to 21st-century Japan and on to the wider world. Bookended by opening and closing collaborative tracks, Takematsu, one of the founding members of EM Records stalwarts Noahlewis' Mahlon Taits, rides solo for the bulk of the tracks, sounding relaxed and focused. The opening title track, by Takematsu, features some guest percussion from his bandmates, and the final track is a remix, by Tomoki Kanda, of John Fahey's "On Doing An Evil Deed Blues". Two more tracks by Fahey appear, plus songs by Skip James and William Moore. This time-travelling set is a charm. Cover art by Moog Yamamoto.
