Looking back, can you believe that BBE has now reached the 19th release in the BBE Music J Jazz Series and it's a big 'un as features two of the greatest in jazz  together with a band of the very best Japanese jazz musicians.

Originally released in 1973(!) this 2 track album, 'Reminicent Suite' (Waldron, 23:43) and 'Black Forest' (Hino, 18:38) it's a shame no previous unreleased tracks have be found but a fresh new vinyl dpressing is enough to get excited about.

The title track, unsrprisingly, is in three parts, Dig It Deep Down Baby ~ Echoes ~ Once More With Feeling and for you jazzdance fans of the avant-bangy piano and drums with squirty cream horns, don't go any further than 'Dig It Deep Down Baby': TUNE! you may well hear someone say.

'Black Forest' is just stunning angular jazz-funk fusion that was/is next step essential.

These days, we've got Takuya Kuroda (Blue Note, First Word) to fly the Japanese trumpet jazz flag but it doesn't hurt to get in touch with what's gone before.
