Very Good Album, Highly Underrated

I used to listen to this album all the time when I was younger. It's a very cultural album, mixing in traditional japanese music with jazz, r&b, and various pop elements. In other words, it has a little something of everything - that being said, you may not like some of the tracks on here, so it is better to sample all of them before you buy the entire album. I recommend the first 3 songs to get you a better understanding of what this album holds. Those also happen to be three of my most favorite tracks on here. Love and Understanding, especially, it's a very snazzy tune.

Also, major iTunes error, this album was released in 1994, not 1979. I have no idea where they got that date from.

Hiroshima, a group whose music falls between R&B, pop, world music, and jazz, has long had its own niche. The band integrates traditional Japanese instruments into their musical blend and has generally been both commercial and creative within its genre. Hiroshima's founding members are keyboardist Dan Kuramoto (who also played shakuhachi), June Okida Kuramoto on koto (a key part of the group's sound), Johnny Mori on taiko drums, and Danny Yamamoto on drums, percussion, and taiko.
