Shuichi Chino: piano; Kazuo Imai: guitar. "Pianist Shuichi Chino's lengthy career is more convoluted, with early stints in groups like Wha-ha-ha and the Downtown Boogie Woogie Band, followed by theatre and soundtrack work, and a towering heap of sessions with improvisers like Butch Morris, and Kazuhisa Uchihashi. 001111 is a reissue of a minimally distributed private CD-R, documenting Chino and Imai's acoustic duo meeting at the Tokyo University of Fine Arts, on 11 November 2001. Together they explore the subtleties of group-mind free shiver, pluck and rustle, hitting a foggy zone where Django nods out with John Tilbury." -- Alan Cummings.
