Between Black and White

1999 marked 20 years since the band's unique combination of distinctively Japanese elements -- June Kuramoto's classical-flavored koto, Johnny Mori's booming Taiko drum -- with funky pop, urban, and jazz sensibilities first hit the instrumental music charts, and 25 years since saxophonist and East L.A. native Dan Kuramoto first formed the ensemble. Their Windham Hill Jazz debut and 11th release overall Between Black and White finds them once again blending contemporary root music, mystical Eastern exotica, and melodically rich smooth jazz that further deepens their larger commitment to global unity on the cusp of the new millennium.
