Terumasa Hino is a leading Japanese trumpet player, four very special and rare LPs from his earlier catalogue are being reissued and will be widely available outside of Japan for the very first time, for Record Store Day 2020.
Hino's track "Ode to workman" was featured on the excellent 2018 compilation 'J Jazz: Deep Modern Jazz From Japan 1969- 1984' released on BBE. These 4 records are important pieces in 1970's independent Jazz!
In 1970, after breaking up his legendary quintet band, Terumasa Hino moved his base to the U.S. This record shows his great effort in his long-term session with the local musicians, and is very important to know Jazz scene in New York at that time. With Steve Grossman, Dave Liebman, Bob Moses and Dave Holland, Terumasa Hino produced these two outstanding epic avant-garde jams.
