Description:Burkina is the long-awaited third album by Erena Terakubo, the intrepid, young alto saxophonist from Sapporo, Japan. She surprised and made a strong impression on jazz fans with her debut album North Bird in 2010 while she was still attending high school. She then followed up with a very strong sophomore album New York Attitude the following year. In the fall of 2011, she was accepted to Berklee College of Music in Boston with a full scholarship and moved to the U.S.

As with her previous two albums, this album was recorded in New York with true jazz legends: Kenny Barron on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Jimmy Cobb and Lenny White on drums.

The CD opens with a fiery Afro number "Burkina," an original by Terakubo inspired by her trip to Burkina Faso in early 2011. With Lenny White's explosive drumming, Terakubo erupts from the beginning with full emotion and raw power. In addition to two more originals, she plays tunes associated with great alto saxophonists including Cannonball Adderley ("Azure Serape," and "Never Say Yes") and Charlie Parker ("Everything Happens To Me," "I'm In The Mood For Love" and "Move").

This is a powerful album by a young, talented saxophonist who seems to grow stronger and more substantial every year!

Recorded at Avatar Studios in New York on April 21 and 22, 2013. DSD recording, mixing and mastering. The CD features blue laser diode cutting, green label coating and silver spattering technologies for superior sound quality.
