Cecil McBee (1935- ) has a bass player who has long carrier of collaboration with so many musicians. If it is with Japanese musicians, it should be with Yosuke Yamashita, who has his New York Trio since 1988.

Yosuke used to have “bass-less trio” so long. Cecil McBee’s bass should be so stimulative.
Then, Terumasa Hino.

Hino moved to New York in 1975, then he tried his Japanese oriented music with American musicians as challenge.
And, if regardless of Japanese, probably the most popular one is with Charles Lloyd.
