Description:Wonderfully talented jazz bassist and singer, Nicki Parrott is releasing new albums from the Japanese label Venus Records at a stunning pace, reflecting her popularity in Japan and the eagerness of the label to put out new material.

Sakura Sakura is a Japanese traditional song about cherry blossoms, which Parrott sings in very good Japanese, partly to show her appreciation for the Japanese fans, I suspect, and to show support to the survivors of the earthquake/tsunami disaster that hit Japan. A quick glance will reveal that the theme of this album is Spring, a season filled with hope and celebration of new life.

A stellar team of New York-based musicians supports the leader. Nicki's sister Lisa Parrott is prominently featured on soprano and baritone saxophone, and the participation of the great young trumpeter Dominick Farinacci is a welcome surprise. Another twist is bassist Martin Wind, who plays cello instead of his usual instrument in this album.

Vinyl LP version is available here.

Produced by Tetsuo Hara and todd Barkan. Recorded at Avatar Studio in New York on November 25, 26 and 28, 2011.
