Richard Beirach with Terumasa Hino & Yoshiaki MasuoZal – In Duet With Terumasa Hino & Yoshiaki Masuo ... CD
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... About July 7, 2021
One of the most beautiful albums of the 70s from pianist Richie Beirach – and in saying that, we don't mean to insult the rest of his other great American work! This set was done in Japan, and it's maybe one of Beirach's most obscure of the decade – but it's also a really special session that features the pianist in combination with two different musicians – guitarist Yoshiaki Masuo on side one, and trumpeter Terumasa Hino on side two – each artists whose contributions bring out a slightly different side of Beirach's sound! The guitar on side one highlights some of those spacious, airy notes that Richie brought to his beautiful ECM sides of the period – while Hino's use of both trumpet and flugelhorn emphasizes some of the darker tones of the piano, but in ways that are completely different than Beirach's work with Dave Liebman. One title is also just solo piano – and titles include "Yesterdays", "Mavrodaphne", "Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair", "Zal", and "What Is This Thing Called Love". CD

Terumasa HinoPart – Terumasa Hino Meets Reggie Workman (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Love/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $24.99
A fantastic collaboration between Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino and avant bassist Reggie Workman – one that might seem unusual if you only know Hino's later work, but which was part of a few key collaborations that Hino and Workman did together at the start of the 70s – part of a real spiritual awakening in the trumpeter's music! The tracks are long and very expressive – and the group is mostly Japanese – with Hino on trumpet, Workman on bass, Motohiko Hino on drums, Kiyoshi Sugimoto on guitar, Mideo Ichikawa on electric piano, Yuji Imamura on conga, and Takao Uematsu on bass clarinet and tenor – all working together in a spirit that's clearly caught the imagination of the post-Coltrane years, and which is completely different than the straighter hardbop that Hino was recording just a few years previously. Titles include "A Part", "Ode To Workman", and "Be & Know". CD

Terumasa HinoPeace & Love (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
TDK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
Groundbreaking work from Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino – recorded on an early trip to New York, back in 1970, working with a sextet that includes some of his own Japanese players, like drummer Motohiko Hino and pianist Hideo Ichikawa, plus the great American bassist Reggie Workman! The album features 2 very long tracks – "Gongen" and "Peace & Love" – both a bit free, and infused with a post-Coltrane sense of spiritual exploration. Hino's really changing his style a lot in this setting – taking a lot more chances than on earlier Japanese sessions, reaching out towards a future jazz approach for the 70s. CD

✨✧ Terumasa HinoHino's Journey To Air (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Love/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Trumpeter Terumasa Hino at a level that's quite different than most of his early work in Japan – recording in New York, and using a very spiritual approach – one that's clearly influenced by some of the other players in the session! The album features one long track – a bit improvised, and almost free at times – but also given a strong sense of direction, too – that balance between completely unbridled expression and structure that can make some of the best spiritual jazz sessions so great! Hino's on trumpet, and also plays some flugelhorn – and other players include Steve Grossman on tenor and flute, Pete Yellin on alto and flute, Dave Liebman on alto and tenor, Olu Dara on trumpet, Bob Moses on drums, Dave Holland on bass, and Mike Garson on piano and Fender Rhodes.

✨✧ Terumasa HinoLove Nature (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Love/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing moment from Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino – an early 70s session recorded in America – with fantastic work from Gary Bartz on alto and Reggie Workman on bass! The album's not like Hino's later American dates – which were often more fusion based – as the style here is sublimely spiritual, with long tracks stretching out in just the same energy as some of the first few albums by Bartz! Also like Bartz, the tunes really stretch out, but never go too far outside – less avant than searingly expressive, with fantastic work from both horn players throughout. The group also features a guitarist, who colors the sound nicely – and the album features two long tracks – "Sister Mayumi" and "Each Other Love Nature". CD

✨✧ Terumasa HinoVibrations ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pretty strong stuff from Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino – a session recorded during that early 70s period when he was really finding a new sense of openness in his music, which includes records like this – a meeting with a strong set of European avant players! The tracks are long, and often relatively free – a mixture of tighter arrangements and improvised solos that really take off – very strong work from Hino on trumpet, alongside Heinz Sauer on tenor, Peter Warren on bass, and Pierre Favre on drums. The tracks are long, with an energy that even surpasses some of Hino's free work in Japan – and titles include "Into The Heaven", "Dig It", "Crackling", and "Ph Ph T". CD

John ScofieldJohn Scofield ... CD
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 7, 2021
A pretty rare set from guitarist John Scofield – and a pretty great one too! The album was originally issued only in Japan, and it features Scofield playing with a quartet that includes Clint Houston on electric and acoustic bass, Motohiko Hino on drums, and Terumasa Hino on trumpet on a few tracks – a really nice lineup that gives the record a very different flavor than some of John's other early sessions! Scofield's in prime groove territory on the track "Public Domain" – which is a long and tight little number – and other tracks have a more open-ended feel, but are still quite strong, with a lot less of the airy quality that can sometimes characterize Scofield's other work of the time. Titles include "Ida Lupino", "Un Toco Loco Ballet", "Blues For Okinawa", and "Amy (Who Else?)". CD
This title is scheduled for release about Wednesday, July 7.

Mal WaldronMoods (with bonus track) ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... About May 26, 2021 (delayed)
A bold musical statement from Mal Waldron – one of his strongest efforts from his European time of the 70s, thanks to some great help from strong hornmen on the set! Half the session features Waldron in introspective solo mode, as recorded often at the time – but the rest of the album features work by a bold sextet that includes Steve Lacy on soprano sax, Terumasa Hino on cornet, and Hermann Breuer on trombone. These group tracks are all quite long, and although free at times, have a focus and energy that's not only uncommon for Waldron in the period – but also for Lacy, who wasn't often working in such a style. Terumasa Hino's horn, as usual, is a strongly punctuating force on the set – and group titles include "Minoat", "Sieg Haile", and "A Case Of Plus 4s". Solo numbers include "Anxiety", "Lonely", and "Happiness" – all quite nice numbers, just a bit gentler and more introspective. CD features the bonus track "Soul Eyes". CD

VariousDays Of Delight – Dynamic (Yakudo) ... CD
Days Of Delight/Universal (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $29.99
Soaring, searing spiritual jazz from the Japanese scene of the 70s – most of it pulled from the catalog of the East Wind label, an imprint that was really letting some of the younger musicians open up and do their thing! Japanese jazz had come very far forward in the 60s – but during the 70s, there was an even greater wave of exploration – partly from the older musicians, who were really starting to break past straighter American modes, but also from younger players who were initially inspired by the spiritual styles of John Coltrane and his group, then fused that energy with their own organic explorations – with results that you'll hear here in the best of their formation! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Minors Only" by Takehiro Honda, "Recollection" by Kosuke Mine, "In The Darkness" by Terumasa Hino, "Vichakani" by Sadao Watanabi, and one more long track with a Japanese title by Masabumi Kikuchi, pulled from his End For The Beginning album.

VariousDays Of Delight – Resonance (Kyoshin) ... CD
Days Of Delight/Sony (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $29.99
A really special slice of Japanese jazz from the 70s – tracks from the sorts of records that make that scene so different than any others we can think of – especially in the way the musicians evolved familiar styles into personal grooves of their own! Instrumentation varies with each track, and often includes a fusing of acoustic elements with a few slight electric touches – almost never in familiar fusion ways, but instead with this organic energy that's really wonderful – and which gives almost all of these tunes a really special sort of glow! The quality of the music is a bit hard to sum up in words, but the package provides a perfect introduction to the range of great Japanese jazz albums issued by Columbia in the 70s – with titles that include "Shrimp Dance" by Hiroshi Suzuki, "On The Horizon" by Kazumi Watanabe, "Love More Train" by Terumasa Hino, "Breeze" by Hiromasa Suzuki, "Up Into The Sky" by Fumio Itabashi, "Babylonia Wind" by Kiyoshi Sugimoto, and "For My Little Bird" by Shigeru Mukai.

VariousEnja Label Collection Vol 2 – Modern Jazz From Japan ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
An important part of the long legacy of Enja Records – a label that was based in Germany, but also offered key opportunities for expression to Japanese musicians over the years – especially during the 70s, when Enja released represented some of the few times these musicians were heard outside their local scene! Enja also maybe took even more chances with some of its Japanese artists than its American and European ones – allowing for some more outside, avant recordings – of which you'll find plenty here – mixed with a few straighter numbers as well. The package includes some moments when Japanese soloists join the groups of others, and lots more work by the musicians as leaders – and titles include "Night In Tunisia" by Yosuke Yamashita, "Alone Alone Alone" by Terumasa Hino, "Comme La Radio" by Akira Sakata, "Trinity" by Masahiko Sato, "Children Of The Night" by Bob Degen with Terumasa Hino, "Humpty Dumpty" by Akio Sasajima, "From Now On" by Karl Berger with Masahiko Sato, "Scarborough Fair" by Yosuke Yamashita and Hozan Hamamoto, "Ask Me Now" by Aki Takase and David Murray, and "Goodbye Porkpie Hat" by Aki Takase.

✨✧ Hal GalperNow Hear This ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic stuff – one of pianist Hal Galper's best non-electric sets of the 70s! Galper's working here with a quartet – playing piano in a group that includes Terumasa Hino on trumpet, Cecil McBee on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – all astounding players who really make the album sparkle with even more energy than some of Hal's great early 70s material on the Mainstream label. And with a rhythm section that hip, Terumasa Hino lays out some of his best work in years – searing trumpet solos over the top, stretched out but never too sloppy, as the tracks always maintain a strong rhythmic pulse and a lot of soul. Titles include "Shadow Waltz", "Mr Fixit", "First Song In The Day", and "Red Eye Special". CD

✨✧ Shuko MizunoJazz Orchestra 73 ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really striking mix of straight jazz and avant moments – served up here by a Japanese ensemble who were definitely ahead of the curve for their generation! The record stands as one of a handful of excellent Japanese dates of this sort – music that really pushes the boundaries of the jazz orchestra format – maybe not in the way of an improvising orchestra, but with colors, tones, and instrumental passages that move in modes that are far past the modern jazz groups of this type from the 50s and 60s! The set features work by some great soloists – Terumasa Hino on trumpet, Kenji Mori on alto, Hideto Kanai on bass, Masayuki Takayanagi on guitar, Shuko Mizuno on organ, and Joe Mizuki on percussion – and although the whole thing works well as a whole, the second half breaks out into a few more swinging moments.
