Shintaro Quintet :: Evolution

Out later this month, BBE Music’s seventh installment in their archival Japanese jazz series highlights the Shintaro Quintet’s lp, Evolution–an album originally released in 1984 via the independent label Streetnoise Records.

A modal affair led by bassist Shintaro Nakamura, the session was cut in New York City and comprised of a Japanese-American band featuring pianist Jeff Jenkins, trumpet player Shunzo Ohno, saxophonist Bob Kenmotsu, and drummer Fukushi Tainaka.
