A new project dropped today from Terumasa Hino and DJ Honda:

Terumasa Hino was born in 1942 in Tokyo City. He moved to New York in 1975 and worked with a who’s who of jazz. In 1989 Hino became the first Japanese artist to sign with the legendary esteemed American jazz label BLUE NOTE. Throughout the years Hino’s success in Japan and his career has been likened to that of Miles Davis; as they both experimented with jazz/rock fusion and also played the same instrument; the trumpet. In the past few years Terumasa Hino has teamed up with legendary hip-hop icon, dj honda and formed a new sound of fusion blending heavy beats and scratching.

Unity is a master key. Nice find Robbie, thanks. I second the above. Deep jazz from japan cant go wrong by some Hino. I like the sounds on ‘Beyond Descript’. I dont do iTune but may make this an exception to the rules.
