Japanese guitarist Hirokazu Yamaguchi releases today his new album "Vortex Box". It attracts attention with its cover art, very much in early 70s Yamashita's style, and even more - the fact that Yamaguchi plays classical and 12-strings guitars.

HIROKAZU YAMAGUCHI / &amp;#23665;&amp;#21475;&amp;#24291;&amp;#21644; / Hirokazu Yamaguchis Vortex Box / &amp;#12498;&amp;#12525;&amp;#12459;&amp;#12474;&amp;#12539;&amp;#12516;&amp;#12510;&amp;#12464;&amp;#12481;&amp;#12474;&amp;#12539;&amp;#12508;&amp;#12523;&amp;#12486;&amp;#12483;&amp;#12463;&amp;#12473;&amp;#12539;&amp;#12508;&amp;#12483;&amp;#12463;&amp;#12473;

Radical Jazz Standard Quartet just released the album, which contains acoustic free jazz take on some jazz standards. It's good the originals are named by titles :)
