Excellent jazz from leading veteran players in the Tokyo jazz scene, this studio recording is led by bassist Satoshi Kosugi and delivers refined and hard-swinging jazz standards such as “The Best Thing For You Would Be Me”, “No Moon At All”, and “Monk’s Dream”, often with new arrangements and with strong, swinging bass throughout. A good spirit pervades this greatly satisfying jazz recording.
