Artist Biographies:

"Mototeru Takagi (高木元輝) (28 December 1941 - December 2002) was a Japanese tenor saxophone player, known for playing in a distinctive and powerful free jazz style. He played with many of the most important Japanese free groups and musicians during the seventies, such as ESSG and those of Masahiko Togashi, Motoharu Yoshizawa and Masayuki Takayanagi.

Takagi was born in Osaka in 1941, but grew up in Yokohama. During his younger years, he spent time in the bands of players like Charlie Ishiguro and Hisashi Sakurai, but only really began developing his distinctive free style when he joined the Motoharu Yoshizawa Trio in 1968. The following year he joined Togashi's Quartet and ESSG. After Togashi's accident, Takagi played briefly with Masayuki Takayangi's New Direction Unit and in a duo with percussionist Sabu Toyozumi. From November 1973 he spent one year playing in France, returning to Japan in November 1974.

Takagi recorded very few albums as a leader over the course of his career, but he was highly valued as a collaborator by many Japanese jazz, rock and avant-garde musicians."

"Kim Dae Hwan (김대환) was one of Korea's most renowned western style percussionists. He died 70 years old. It was very fast to be gone. We cannot forget his wildness and smile. At first He was a drummer of the first Korean rock group ADD4 formed by Shin Joong Hyun who is the godfather of Korean rock. Then he formed his own band called Kim Trio (the principle of this band was never performing the same songs), and so on. He joined the first Korean free music group Kang Tae Hwan Trio in 1978. After that, he had performed by solo musician, and collaborated with many kinds of artists till his death. And also he was a famous calligraphist. His work, 346 letters on a gain of rice, appears on Guinness Book. He had performed calligraphy on his stage every time. Only this was his leader album put on the market formally before he died. He played very simple drum sets that constructed with a roto-tom and cymbals and Korean traditional drum, with six sticks in his hands. It was very silently. Above his drum sound, haegeum (Korean traditional instrument) by Mrs. Kang Eun Il was crying bitterly or weeping gently."

"Choi Sun Bae produces a clear and lyrical sound on the trumpet, cornet, and flugelhorn. He strives to contribute to the overall beauty of the ensemble rather than to dominate it by drawing attention to the strength and force of his individual improvisations, and he considers tone to be more important than phrasing in his solos.

Choi Sun Bae is an accomplished mainstream jazz musician as well as a free improviser. He performs regularly in Japan, where he is well known as Korea's representative master trumpeter. He participated in the Olympic International Jazz Festival in 1988 and played with the Incheon Symphony Orchestra.

In 1998 he recorded a freely improvised album, Freedom / Solo Trumpet Improvisations with the help of Suetomi Dakao. This album is an important record of life and art, which is portrayed throughout his work, and it is solid proof that he is a truly contemporary artist.

Since 2002 he constantly works together with Alfred Harth appearing on several Laubhuette Productions up to now.

In the years 2003 - 2006 he also contributed sound sources to Alfred Harth's Mother-Of-Pearl-CD-Series"
