Terumasa Hino (sometimes titled "Japanese Miles Davis") debut album in full - Terumasa sounds mellower than Davis, but at the same time he avoids psychedelic abstractions from one side and high energy explosions from other.  Generally a hard bop album, it contains surprising (the year is 1967) early fusion piece (title track) and interesting version of "Summertime" . His brother Motohiko Hino - on drums

On a peak of his early popularity on a fusion wave, Kikuchi released very uncommon album (especially in jazz world) - double vinyl with 5 different versions of his fusion hit "Dancing Mist", recorded live with different line ups on different concerts. All but one versions are side-long.

Sandinista isn't a movement in Central America and even not a The Clash's album. It's an Japanese label, releasing some strange mix of piano jazz, Latin and brass rock.  ギリギリBOYZ  are good example






&amp;amp;#12462;&amp;amp;#12522;&amp;amp;#12462;&amp;amp;#12522;BOYZ / &amp;amp;#26087;&amp;amp;#12487;&amp;amp;#12488;&amp;amp;#12525;&amp;amp;#12452;&amp;amp;#12488; / MUD (7&amp;quot;)
