CD Reviews

Great sounds as usual - what about more percussion (taiko)
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD, like all of Hiroshima's work, has the effect of drawing in the listener and enveloping him/her with their own unique tonal blend. My only disappointment is that there isn't more taiko (Johnny Mori) on this album. I love the strong, traditional stuff with the Asian influence filtering through the smooth jazz focus. There is, gratefully, a lot of June Kuramoto's koto magic featured. What a talent! This band is an L.A. original with a strong local following that is ever-growing outward - another treasure unique to Los Angeles. I can't wait for the next CD!"
Hiroshima has return in the best of form.

"Hiroshima's latest album: Between Black and White, is one of their best yet. The group has returned to their original jazz genre, without many vocal tracks to distract from their unique sound, for instance, their previous album: Urban World Music has contained. My first listening to this album, had me spellbound, which the music took me into another world of it's own like no other jazz artist could maintained. I love every song on this album, and it was well worth the wait from one of the best contemporary jazz artists in the industry, and I am waiting for their next project to be released. This CD is a "MUST" to be purchased by Hiroshima fans and others who are not familiar with their great talent and unique sound. Between Black and White has deliver my expectations,and it's well worth the money spent, and more. after listening to this CD, I will guarantee that you will not be disappointed. I just can't comprehend on why this group has not receive the national recognition they truly deserve from the music industry. Spread the word."
This is what they do best!

"After experimenting with "Urban World Music," Hiroshima is back and this time they've stuck to their original formula for success: Creating instrumentals that run deep! They only included one song with lyrics, "The Door Is Open," and it's the cream of the crop because this CD is mostly a showcase of Hiroshima's latest signature jazz sound. The instrumentals on this CD is the music style of Hiroshima that has kept me coming back for 15 years!"
