AllMusic Review by

1999's Aqua Blue marks the American debut of Japanese composer/musician Shinji Ishihara. Though much of his expertise lies in scoring films, museum exhibitions and commercials, Shinji applies his classical training and formal music background to this collection of jazz pieces in a fluid, intelligent manner. His agile, flowing keyboard lines are supported by tasteful bass and drum accompaniment, making Aqua Blue's artful jazz more than worthy of exhibition.
