Hiroshima continues to bring west coast influences to world music, that transcend music boundaries.

Opening with "RED BUDDHA," an exotic romp through Japanese Obon festivals, electronic drums and pop, it's filled with celebration and fun. "LOST IN PROVENCE" is a catchy 'road trip' samba with a story all its own. "STATE OF MIND" is a sophisticated turn recalling the fusion of jazz and R&B. "DA KITCHEN" is funk and soul with a Hiroshima spin, and "LADY OF MYSTERY"-- June, of course-- is pure exotica. "KIMOCHI" (feeling) is a haunting, sensual mood piece and "MEIJI MAMBO" is a funky, tongue-in-cheek rocker with a wild ending. DAYS GONE BY is a moving vocal ballad composed and sung by Terry Steele, of 'Here and Now' fame. "AFTERNOON KOTO" is June weaving her koto magic in a beautiful tone poem. "CRUISIN J-TOWN" not only relates to the CD title, but is a 'cooking' latinrock re-make of a song from Hiroshima's 2nd record, Obon. Finally, the powerfully emotional, "TO SAY GOODBYE," is a beautiful treatise destined to become a Hiroshima 'classic.' 11 tracks.
