Rain Man's Story - Tale of Two -





Yoshichika Tarue, pianist of club jazz quartet indigo jam unit, releases his second "Rain Man's Story" album, subtitled "Tale of Two".


The follow-up to his 2010 release "Rain Man's Story", on "Rain Man's Story - Tale of Two" Yoshichika Taure calls on renowned Japanese

jazz bassist Tomokazu Sugimoto for a duo performance which picks up where he left off two years ealier. Once again inspired by scenes

of rain, Tarue and Sugimoto traveled back to the same country side concert hall where one of Japan's most well kept pianos can be found:

a stunningly sounding Steinway full concert size piano.

The recording, twelve songs in one single take, was captured with four microphones placed in a single spot with each mic pointing in a

different direction to mimick the aural sensation of actually being right there on stage next to the musicians. The sound of the instruments,

the movements of the musicans, the reflections of the hall, everything just like you were there.

As for after the recording, there have been no edits made whatsoever. What you hear is what happened.
