Biography

In 1971, Duke Ellington recorded an album entitled The Afro-Eurasian Eclipse. As part of that work, Ellington proclaimed “that whole world was going [Asian],” and that no one would know “who was in the shadow of whom.” The celebrated ensemble known as Hiroshima is the fulfillment of Ellington’s prophecy. In the three decades since they first convened, the Los ... Read more in Amazon's Hiroshima Store

Very nice instrumentals on this CD, just what I expect and love to hear from Hiroshima. I've been a fan of Hiroshima since the 80s, and as long as they continue to produce CDs I'll keep on buying them.

Track #6, "Another wish," is my favorite. it's guaranteed to put a smile on your face! I liked "Believe," but "Caravan of love" wasn't enough. I can't figure out "Sever rivers." What can I say, it's weird!

Terry Steele is a fine vocalist, but I can't see him as being a regular member of the band. We Hiroshima fans need to start a petition to have Barbara Long (who was the lead singer on "Go" and "Another place") return to the band and sing on their next album. I miss her talent for singing!

Although this CD isn't as good as "Between Black and White," The Bridge is still worthy of my Hiroshima collection and makes for an enjoyable listening experience.

Probably their best effort since the 1994 L.A. album (my favorite). I've been a fan of Hiroshima since I picked up my first Odori cassette in '81/82, and this album goes where they have not gone before.
If the title "The Bridge" is a clue that they are crossing into something different then they have definately succeeded. The vocals of Terry Steele add a completely new and absolutely cool R&B flavor. On some of the cuts if it was not for June Kuramoto's trademark koto it would be difficut to tell that this is a Hiroshima album, even some of the more 'traditional' Hiroshima cuts on the album have a much more smooth jazz quality. The whole album also has a bolder bass line that really pumps things up.
Definitely worth adding to your Hiroshima/music collection!

I've said this before....this is Hiroshima in their element. The sound, the vibe, the music....the very essence of smooth. The vocals are probably the only "weak" areas of this disc, albeit they ain't bad, but, do we really need another version of the Isley's "Caravan of Love", regardless of how "well" it's sung?
June Kuramoto jams hardest on this disc and the instrumentals are reminiscent of the band in it's 80's heyday.
This one's a keeper. I'd recommend it to those looking for smooth, unwinding jazz with the kind of edge that makes it perfect for late night relaxiing as well.
I just can't get over "Caravan of Love"......arghhh!!

I love Hiroshima's style-I have just about everything they've put out. At first, I thought this cd was too "smooth jazz" & slick for me, but after repeated listening it's starting to grow on me( even the vocal tracks!). It's not that the vocals aren't first class, but for me it's always been the instrumentals that blow me away. I prefer their older material, but their recent best of collection is great as well. If you ever get a chance to see them live you really should. They are amazing!

I am amazed that this release has not been reviewed by anyone to date. I bought it along with my first sacd player in '04. It is one of the best examples of what 5.1 can do for the listening experience. IE total emersion in sound. Great mixing and mastering. If the group should re-release all of their previous cd's on 5.1 I would without a doubt replace them all. It will sell you on sacd for sure. Also gives "Dark side of the moon" a run for it's 'money'.
