Terumasa Hino is probably the best and the most famous Japanese jazz trumpeter, one of Japan's finest jazz giant influenced by Miles Davis (his american counterpart) & the Fumio 'Satchmo' Nanri's legacy (trumpeter who played with Louis Amstrong). Hino had the opportunity to work with Sadao Watanabe and others Jazz masters such as Joe Henderson, Elvin Jones, Gil Evans or Jackie McLean. From 1967 to 1970, he played regularly with this formation based on Kunimitsu Inaba and his young brother Motohiko, whose Alone, Alone And Alone is their first recording and also the first jazz album released under his own name, recorded in 1967 but released in 1970. After a interlude with Masabumi Kikuchi (Hino=Kikuchi Quintet - 1968), the group takes its final form featuring saxophonist Takeru Muraoka and the new pianist Hiromasa Suzuki who replaced Yuji Ohno. Titles include Cool Jazz songs as the introducing & Downswing, other superb gems as the brilliant Soulful, demonstrating his great trumpet skill, a variation of George Gershwin' Summertime played in the modal style & B-Lunch. All tracks composed & arranged by Terumasa Hino.
