Donald McPherson & Tetuzi Akiyama, however, continue the tradition quite effortlessly on this gorgeously packaged Bo-Weavil cd with lightly picked tangled guitar meanderings recorded to tape to give it that noisy saturated character we all love so much. These pieces are thoughtful and reflective, but not downbeat, they rouse the spirits and cleanse the soul much in the same way as Fahey might and show off the deft improvisational talents of the two virtuoso guitarists. A meeting of like minds from different cultures, 'Vinegar & Rum' is a triumphant collaboration.
