Artist/Band:Hiroshi Hata
Name:Blues Walk!
Cat No.:XQAM-1505
Performed by:Hiroshi Hata (guitar)

Release Date:08/22/2007
Description:Born in 1959, Hiroshi Hata is a talented guitarist and composer who is sometimes referred to as "Japanese Charlie Christian." He is strongly influenced by his idol and pioneer of jazz guitar, but his blues- and bebop-based guitar playing encompasses many more influences and his own unique style.

Hata had met New York-based Peter Washington and Lewis Nash in the 1990s at a jam session when the latter two were visiting Japan. They formed a strong musical partnership, and together they recorded Hata's debut CD as a leader in 1998 and his second in 2001. This latest release, therefore, is the third collaboration by these musical brothers.

Hata shines with his light, bell-like tone and strong blues feel. His sense of humor comes through in his original compositions "Prince and Spring" and "Portable Music Blues." The super-reliable Washington and Nash lay down impeccable groove and provide sparkling solos. This is a thoroughly enjoyable trio album that should delight fans of jazz guitar.

Produced by Yoshiaki Masuo and Hiroshi Hata. Recorded in October, 2006 at The Studio, NYC.
