Album Notes
Opening with “RED BUDDHA,” an exotic romp through Japanese Obon festivals,
electronic drums and pop, it’s filled with celebration and fun. “LOST IN
PROVENCE” is a catchy ‘road trip’ samba with a story all its own. “STATE OF
MIND” is a sophisticated turn recalling the fusion of jazz and R&B. “DA KITCHEN”
is funk and soul with a Hiroshima spin, and “LADY OF MYSTERY”-- June, of
course-- is pure exotica. “KIMOCHI” (feeling) is a haunting, sensual mood piece and
“MEIJI MAMBO” is a funky, tongue-in-cheek rocker with a wild ending. DAYS GONE
BY is a moving vocal ballad composed and sung by Terry Steele, of ‘Here and Now’
fame. “AFTERNOON KOTO” is June weaving her koto magic in a beautiful tone
poem. “CRUISIN J-TOWN” not only relates to the CD title, but is a ‘cooking’ latinrock
re-make of a song from Hiroshima’s 2nd record, Obon. Finally, the powerfully
emotional, “TO SAY GOODBYE,” is a beautiful treatise destined to become a
Hiroshima ‘classic.’
