CD Reviews

Where is this CD? It's smooth fusion jazz!

"Where can this CD be bought? Since this CD pretty well defined the sound of Hiroshima at its inception, it's a shame that it can't be purchased. Every jazz group has always had a defining recording that makes it stand out from the mainstream and I believe this CD will always have a place in most smooth jazz fan's CD libraries. This combination of japanese instruments with jazz/pop sound is unique and refreshing regardless of how aged the recording!!"
Beyond a mere 5 stars!!!

"It was 1981 and I was a mere teenager, 16 years old to be exact, surrounded by much older siblings..and thank goodness for that..because I was exposed to some great, great music! When my oldest sister played this album at a family gathering, I was immediately smitten, so much so, I took money from college savings and bought this album. So when it was re-issued on CD, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I ordered it as import and have been playing it ever since! The title cut is so delicious to the ear, it just jumps out and grab ya!

The entire project has something for everyone..it crosses the board! But my favorite cuts are the sublime, smooth, mellow "Shinto" and the enriched, elevated vocals of "All I want." When most of my teen friends were listening to "pop" flavored and watered down "R&B" music, I was grooving to the sounds of this album! There were those that didn't get it...and I felt sorry for them then, and I still offer my sympathies if after all these years, they haven't caught on to this bowlful of bountiful bliss! Treat yourself to some classic Hiroshima..."
ODORI IS ADORED

"THE OTHER REVIEWERS PRETTY MUCH NAILED THE DESCRIPTION OF THIS OUTSTANDING RECORDING. I BOUGHT THE VINYL ORIGINALLY WHEN IT WAS RELEASED (80-81) BACK IN MY MARINE CORPS DAYS. FOLKS USED TO COME TO MY HOUSE TO LISTEN TO IT ALL THE TIME. ODORI WAS MY FIRST HIROSHIMA ALBUM, I BOUGHT THE DEBUT ALBUM ABOUT A YEAR LATER, AND WAS EQUALLY FASCINATED WITH IT TOO (DEBUT ALBUM WAS SELF-TITLED HIROSHIMA, HIT CUT WAS DA-DA AND HOLIDAYS). THE GROUP MADE SOME PERSONNEL CHANGES THAT AFFECTED THEIR SOUND IN THE LATE 80'S EARLY NINETIES, BUT FROM THEIR INCEPTION TO ABOUT 1989, THEY WERE NEAR-PERFECT. THIS ALBUM REPRESENTS SOME OF THE MEAT OF THAT NEAR-PERFECTION."
