Terumasa Hino Sextet - Fuji


Here's a rare weeknight posting, but crisp fall weather is in the air, a large glass of bourbon and a sit out on the porch culminated with this lp.
 I came of age in the 70's, learned to dig jazz by the end of the decade. Bet yer ass I never heard this.
 Liner notes tell us the this 1975 lp was Hino's first US release as a leader. All the hipster's though were aware of him a couple of years earlier. Guess I missed out on that part. Probably bought a Yes lp instead.
 Just the same I love this lp that sounds very much of its time (little electric guitar, little electric piano) in a way I never appreciated back then. Then again, I'm pretty sure this record wasn't carried by my local hippie co-op records and tapes joint.

Thank you, HF! I'll try my best hip-wise.

Hey, HF, it seems the first track (01 Be and Know) is only 4 kb in the archive. Any chance for adding a (slightly) longer version? TIA.

Hi Hook! Thks for the Terumasa's, always worth & which went went unnoticed back then. Wasn't hipper than you! BTW, seems there is an issue with the 1st track –Be & Know: 4 ko for 14 min of music, must be the sound of silence! A re-up would be welcome. Cheers

OK hipsters...here is the hopefully corrected link. Thanks to zardoz for pointing this out. To the 100+ other trolls who couldn't be bothered to say thanks...well you get what you pay for.

I expect first edition of this album comes from 1972 (Victor ‎– SMJX-10135),
and it was recorded in 1972 as well

I got a kick out of your comment, since I bought this very LP for 50 cents when I was a kid at our own local hippie co-op records and tapes joint. (Probably was there to get some rolling papers, anyway.)
