Hotter than wasabi.


The international groove is always welcome at Soul Junction, so I have a host of Japanese jazz and funk lined up, including Sadao Watanabe, Terumasa Hino, and of course, my man, Masabumi Kikuchi.  Plus, a rare recording of Joe Henderson's storied tour of Japan (not the Milestone classic!) and J.J. Johnson & Nat Adderley's fabled Yokohama concert.  AND, there will be electric Peanuts music from Vince Guaraldi, jazz funk from Hubert Laws, and more from the reissue that keeps on givin'...Ivan "Boogaloo Joe" Jones' Sweetback!
