JAPANESE JAZZ TRUMPETER TERUMASA HINO PERFORMS IN SINGAPORE.
Japanese jazz trumpeter Terumasa Hino performs at the Singapore International Jazz Festival May 20, 2001. Hino, a 60-year-old grandfather who is almost deaf in one ear, told Reuters in an interview that he is keeping in shape to keep playing. With more than 50 albums to his name, Hino has been called Asia's finest jazz trumpeter, though he moved to New York in 1975 to break into the American jazz scene and is now based in New Jersey.
