Description:Tiger Okoshi is a versatile trumpeter who has played both fusion and fairly straight-ahead jazz. Born in Japan and a resident of the U.S. since 1972, Okoshi first gained attention playing with Gary Burton. He also had a stint with George Russell's Living Time Orchestra in the early '90s and recorded with Bob Moses.

Plays Standards is Okoshi's latest leader album and the premier release of a new label A60JAZZ, founded by a veteran producer Kenny Inaoka who is known for his long association with ECM. From the first notes of the opening track, Okoshi demonstrates he is one of the best trumpeters in the world right now: His tone is beautiful, his technique impeccable and his imagination limitless.

Okoshi invited several guests for this special project. The Japanese pianist who now lives in New York, Chihiro Yamanaka was his student at Berklee College of Music. Actually, so was guitarist Kazuhiko Michishita and drummer Tommy Campbell. The biggest guest, of course, is another Japanese trumpeter, Terumasa Hino. The two tracks these two masters play together are clear highlights of this beautiful album.

The engineer used vintage tube microphones to capture the trumpets, and latest, wide-range microphones for other instruments. He used no EQ and relied on microphone placements for tonal balance. This purist approach gives this CD a great sound. This is one of rare occasions where the quality of performance and the quality of sound are both superb. Very highly recommended!

Produced by Kenny Inaoka. Recorded at Sound Inn, Tokyo, on March 13 & 14, 2008.
