Contentious... Takayangi is brilliant, but I can't help but feel that he's at his best with Abe, and not essential always (and, obviously, dead now). I take it you've heard his protege Imai? He's a ridiculously, absurdly amazing player. Sickening really, and I nearly never say that about a guitarist.
It's all fun and games and stuff and also things.
