••• Morgan Salon #20: NANKER'S BEST + BENNETT-KURODA •••
Morgan Fisher is delighted to welcome to Morgan Salon two brilliant rock/blues/jazz duos:
NANKER'S BEST (Yutaro Ogida, gtr/voc & Morgan Fisher, keys/voc) and
BENNETT-KURODA (Samm Bennett, 3-string gtr/voc & Daisuke Kuroda, gtr)
What to say about these musicians, except they are amazingly versatile, deeply experienced, and overflowing with spontaneous creativity, music power, and fun! Here are a few pointers:
NANKER'S BEST: Yutaro is a prolific singer/songwriter playing in various line-ups including Japan's finest Pink Floyd tribute band. Morgan's roots are in soul but his career has had him play prog rock, ambient, and hard rock notably with Mott the Hoople.
The two have been gigging together regularly for over a year offering a rich mix of Yutaro's originals, classic rock covers, and the odd Mott number.

BENNETT-KURODA: Samm is a multi-instrumentalist but mainly a drummer with a briliant sense of rhythm which informs the memorable riffs he plays on his primitive yet cool 3-stringed guitar. His robust Alabama voice often morphs into a fine Curtis Mayfield style falsetto which is rarely heard these days. Accompanying and embellishing Samm's original songs (with the occasional cover of iconic blues/folk songs)
is Daisuke's guitar, with both a great feel for simple, spare rhythms, and also highly expressive, liquid jazz/blues lines ("blew me away!" says Morgan).

following a full set by each duo, they will join together in what promises to be a fascinating four-man mix/blend/jam to round out an inspiring evening.
