Itani recently spoke with BW&BK’s Carl Begai about Donahue‘s involvement:
“Several years ago, I met Tim during a jam session. Tim and I are in the same age, and we have much in common. We are good friends for a long time now. We did few duo gigs in Japan with my guitar and his self-produced electric harp guitar. When I started to work for my new album Station To Station, I asked him to join my record with his fretless guitar. Although he rarely plays his fretless guitar in the past years, he agreed to rock again for my record. His performance on my album is outstanding and brilliant. I’m proud to have him on my record.”
