Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Now hailed as one of the downtown scene's founding fathers, Teiji Ito blended world music, avant-garde classical and improvisation as early as 1952. This fourth volume of music out of the Ito archives features the original recordings of two of his last and most important extended compositions. Drawing upon cosmic and shamanic principles learned first hand from a variety of spiritual masters around the world, 'Axis Mundi' (using an orchestra of homemade instruments) and 'Quetzalcoatl' (performed with Singers from the Sioux Nation) are the culmination of a lifetime of spiritual study by this elusive and enigmatic musical explorer.
