Takenobu Has My Ear
I beg you. Please take some time and listen to this track from Takenobu. There’s something remarkable about this track, from start to finish. It opens with really light string arrangements, heavy-handed on the cello…the main instrument of Nick Ogawa. Soon, however, his voice enters into the picture, holding you close with his lofty pop ambitions. Sure, work like this has been crafted before, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard it done quite so well…and quite so focused on the string arrangements. He’s just finished up the finer touches on his album Reversal, his fifth album; it’ll make it your way on February 12th.
