I have to admit that I have seen this artist's name before but I've kind of glanced right by it, overlooked it. Okay, maybe I have to admit that I was unconsciously and musically prejudiced and didn't think an Asian man could put the soul into some sax that I like feel thorugh my ears. I was soooo wrong and because of that, Jeff Kashiwa is my artist on display.

I can't find any videos of Jeff Kashiwa except this one but I think it's really interesting because he's playing a different kind of instrument explained in the clip. But just listen to this man and then click on the other links that will give you a sample of what I've discovered.
A little sax goes a deliciously long way.
