Happy Birthday to a most amazing cat. Teruo Nakamura has been a great friend and mentor for thirty years now. He’s an incredible acoustic and electric bassist, as well as record producer, concert promoter and photographer of the highest order.


Over the years we’ve traveled to Japan together for some of the finest radio broadcasts of my career. Along the way Teruo has introduced me to some of the finest jazz players on the planet.; The MJQ, Brian Blade, Roberta Flack, Roy Haynes, George Benson, Lenny White, and Chaka Khan. From Harlem to Tokyo, a true Renaissance man. Happy Birthday Nak!
