HINO = KIKUCHI QUINTET
















Terumasa Hino & Masabumi Kikuchi Quintet for Tact/Columbia Japan from 1968.
Terumasa Hino (tp)Masabumi Kikuchi (p)Takeru Muraoka (ts)Kunimitsu Inaba (b)Motohiko Hino (ds)

Terrific modal - hard bop session from the two leaders who would go on to blaze the electric jazz trail in Japan.This session sounds heavily influenced by the classic Miles Davis Quintet of the mid sixties although the four compositions are all originals by Kikuchi.Great heads and arrangements open up leaving plenty of space for exploratory soloing from Hino,Kikuchi and Muraoka supported by the supple rhythm section of Motohiko Hino and Kunimitsu Inaba.
All Killer No Filler!

Lot of great Japanese musicians who have absorbed the jazz tradition and made it their own. Thanks.
