OSMR: Tatsuya Nakatani & Rhonda Taylor – City of Rocks

Percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani and saxophonist Rhonda Taylor describe their new recording as a tribute to the American Southwest; it could just as easy be marketed as an ode to lower Manhattan or a forgotten rustbelt town – regardless, it is a beautifully American avant-garde recording that is a thrill to hear.
