An eclectic mix of jazz, blues and rock, the new album "Strings of My Soul" demonstrates Tak Matsumoto’s incredible guitar ability and technique, as well as his constant instrumental exploration. The album is his newest release outside Asia after his first solo effort, "Hana," in 2003.
Tagged as the most notorious guitarist in his homeland, Tak is best known for his tenure in B’z, the most successful Japanese hard/blues rock act to date, with more than 80 million albums sold in the last 20 years. In Japan, they play venues like the Yokohama International Stadium to 140,000 people.
Outside of the successful duo, Tak is also an incredible solo artist who is often revered by the likes of Larry Carlton, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Robben Ford, Keb Mo, Pat Metheny and even Eric Clapton. Matsumoto’s guitar experimentation led him from jazz and blues to hard rock and pop; a journey evident on the new album "Strings of My Soul," out since August 7. He considers this album "a new album of myself," while revisiting all of his past favorites songs.
