Terumasa Hino (日野 皓正, Hino Terumasa, born October 25, 1942) is a Japanese jazz trumpeter. He is considered one of Japan's finest jazz musicians.[1] His instruments include the trumpet, cornet, and flügelhorn.[2]

Early life[edit]

His father was a trumpeter and tap dancer. Hino started tap dancing at age four and playing trumpet at age nine. As a teenager, he transcribed solos by Clifford Brown, Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, and Lee Morgan.[2]

Career[edit]

In the 1950s, Hino began his career as a professional jazz musician, inspired by Fumio Nanri and Hiroshi Sakaue.[3] In 1965, he joined Hideo Shiraki's Quintet,[2] with whom he stayed until 1969, leaving to lead his own band full-time, which he started in 1964.

He released first solo album Alone, Alone and Alone (1967) and a group album, Hino-Kikuchi Quintet (1968), with pianist Masabumi Kikuchi.[2] In 1969, Hino released Hi-nology to critical acclaim.[2][4] He collaborated with the Flower Travellin' Band for the 1970 single "Crash".[5] Soon after, Hino performed in several jazz festivals and clubs, such as the Berliner Jazztage in 1971[4] and Munich Jazzclub in 1973. He worked with Kikuchi in 1974 before settling in New York City.

He moved toward funk, free jazz, and avant-garde jazz on the albums Into the Heaven (1970), Vibrations (1971), and Journey Into My Mind (1974). Beginning in the 1980s, Hino spent more time in Japan and started playing cornet. He has worked with Randy Brecker, Gil Evans, Hal Galper, Eddie Gomez, Eddie Harris, Elvin Jones, Sam Jones, Joachim Kuhn, David Liebman, Harvey Mason Jr., Jackie McLean, Airto Moreira, Bob Moses, Alphonse Mouzon, George Mraz, Greg Osby, and Nana Vasconcelos.[2]
