Description:Japanese bassist Kengo Nakamura's third album--and his first from 55 Records--is an ambitious one. One of the most in-demand bassists in New York whose employers include Wynton Marsalis and Benny Golson, Nakamura assembled a team of young and talented musicians around him and recorded a program that consists mostly of his own compositions.

From the primeval opening number--inspired by an image of running on the vast land of Africa--through a formidable bass solo of "Sister Sadie" to a clever composition "DH Swing" (DH stands for dotted half notes), Nakamura's talents are in full display in this album.

Other players provide tremendous support, and perhaps the most impressive is the sharp drumming of Rodney Green. Japanese super pianist Makoto Ozone makes a guest appearance in three tunes.
