A great groove here as Jesse Fischer takes on the latest from Japanese trumpeter (by way of Brooklyn) Takuya Kuroda. “Afro Blues” a Takuya original featuring Lionel Loueke, is off his Blue Note debut Rising Son. Jesse has chosen to give us a nice Summertime jazzy house meets Afrobeat horns vibe. #GetIntoIt
