Beautiful music. Love the subtle interplay between Terumasa Hino and Masuda on 'black daffodils' . love Masuda's languid arpeggio style in general, so fluid.

Art Simon said...

Great, great, stuff! Thanks!

Wow!! I thought it was an absolute killer album. this was on par with the Takehiro Honda "salaam salaam" you posted a while back [btw Honda's album has become one of my fave's]

Another choice J-jazz set that I highly recommend. This was re-released last year in stealth, ultra-quick limited issue in K2 24bit audiophiliac-bodacious quality, simply tremendous phonics either in the original vinyl or the reissue.

However, for my tastes the highlights should have covered Okada-san's bass fiddle walking, Uematsu-san's tenor solo and - of course - the talented but not-often heard Miyata-san on flute! Hino puts in a so-so performance as Masuda-san manages to drew the level of mucis to a higher point. . .

Nicely done,
