Kenichiro Nishihara – Humming Jazz Review

It’s amazing how many artists that I found exploring beyond Nujabes. Kenichiro Nishihara is one that I’ve come to enjoy a lot. His 2008 album reminds me the most of a similar Nujabes-type artist with most songs featuring a guest vocalist over his instrumentals.

Humming Jazz is a light album, like the title says it is almost like a jazz and hip-hop combination. The album is great as a background music because the tone and themes are much more laid-back.

The group of producer/artists from Japan who produce these albums are all amazing and Nishihara is squarely a part of this group.
