*2023 stock* "This release Shintaro Quintet’s private press release ‘Evolution’. It’s another well-chosen release that comes with superb packaging, high sound quality and some interesting sleeve notes which give a fascinating in-depth insight into the music and the musicians in Japan within the specified time period.

Recorded in New York, the one-off recording by bassist Shintaro Nakamura and his quintet features the brilliant trumpeter Shunzo Ohno, who has played on many of the quintessential Japanese jazz albums of the early 1970s and featured alongside Norman Connors on albums ‘You Are My Starship’ and ‘This Is Your Life’ to name just two.

The quintet features tenor saxophonist Robert Kenmotsu who gives a gutsy lyrical contrast for his pairing with Shunzo’s trumpet style, both springboarding off the weaving inventive drum patterns of Fukushi Tainaka and the composed supporting restraint of American pianist Jeff Jenkins. The subtle piano runs add a great texture and warmth that really compliments the front two, and overall, the dynamics within the quintet add something extra special and synergy which brings out the best of each composition." - ukvibe.org
