In this Takahiro Izumikawa's 8th "Hedge Hop" collaboration, NY-based Samurai trumpeter, Takuya Kuroda is appeared!

With a brilliant major release "Rising Son" from Blue Note Records in 2014, he swept the world's jazz scene at once, and then released an album "Zigzagger" from Concord Jazz, making his popularity and ability immovable in the world's Jazz world. The latest work of 2020 "Fly Moon Die Soon" which has Takahiro Izumikawa credited, he pursued the fusion of self-programmed beats and live recordings which is full of funky and mixture feeling.
In addition, Takuya Kuroda is also very popular and stable bandleader of the Japanese Diva, Misia, band who Takahiro Izumikawa also participates as a recording member.
Kuroda's soulful and African jazz-taste trumpet responds to Izumikawa's lyrical piano motif and keyboard sounds and groovy beats!
There are condensed poly-hedron elements which Jazz-based Lo-Fi Diggers must listen!

The jacket design by motivated artist, Yui Ogura is also amazingly gorgeous!
