✨✧ Terumasa Hino & His GroupFeelin' Good (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Takt/Columbia (Japan), 1968. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early hardbop gem from Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino – quite different than you might think from his more famous work of the 70s – with a rolling, soulful groove that would almost be at home on 60s Blue Note! Given Hino's chosen instrument, we'd probably link this one best to ... read more CD
(Out of print, and includes obi! Cover has one tiny bump in a corner, but is great overall.)

✨✧ Terumasa Hino/Masabumi KikuchiHino/Kikuchi Quintet ... LP
Takt/Columbia (Japan), 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible session of Japanese hard bop from the 60s – recorded by the crack quintet of trumpeter Terumasa Hino and pianist Masabumi Kikuchi! The feel here is very much in that Blue Note modern mode of the late 60s – with drawn-out tracks that hit a slightly modal groove that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Non-gatefold pressing, with insert. Cover has some light aging, but this is a nice copy overall!)

Norio Maeda & PlayboysEnraku No Playboy Kouza – The Playboy Manual (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Takt/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. Used Gatefold ... $36.99
The album's got a sexy little cover – but that's no surprise, considering that the record's a late 60s "Playboy Manual" from Japan! The format is quite weird – as each track begins with some Japanese spoken bits from Norio Maeda, possibly on the art of seduction – and ... read more CD

Hiroshi Suzuki/Masahiko Togashi QuintetVariation ... LP
Takt/Future Shock (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... About February 18, 2022 (delayed)
An excellent early album from Japanese drummer Masahiko Togashi, featuring a group that he co-led with trombonist Hiroshi Suzuki! The quintet's got a sound that's kind of a messed-up take on the Blue Note groove of the 60s – particularly the Lee Morgan rolling funky soul jazz sound of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sadao Watanabe & Brazilian 8Sadao Meets Brazilian Friends ... CD
Takt/Denon (Japan), Late 60s. Used ... $11.99
A really great meeting of talents – legendary reedman Sadao Watanabe, who'd already done plenty to bring the bossa nova to Japan by the time of this record – and a host of Brazilian musicians who further help him expand his groove! The combo is listed as Sadao's Brazilian 8 – and ... read more CD
