Smooth Jazz Guitarist Tak Matsumoto Releases 2nd Album Outside Asia “Strings Of My Soul”

Recommended Posts

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.

To get a taste of the Japanese six-string virtuoso’s work, take a listen and/or get the album at: http://335records.com/wordpress/?page_id=368.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
