ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There is a cute little town, in Tokyo, called Koenji. Many musicians and artists live in Koenji and there is always music around the station. I was fortunate to have met some new members of the band, and guest musicians, in that town. This album is the story of my experiences and adventures in that little place in Tokyo.

Every year there is a big Awaodori festival in Koenji. People wear kimonos and play traditional Japanese drums. We were lucky to have some of the musicians from the festival join us for “funnel of love” (Track 1).

I first watched Jordon Cheung sing and play the trumpet outside Koenji station and became a fan of his work. I asked him to sing a duet with me for “Walking my baby back home” (Track 6). Our journey together began with many early cups of coffee as we discussed my love for Koenji. He helped me make it more thrilling and he eventually became the album’s producer and engineer, and working together was a really happy time for me. Even though we didn’t want it to end, we finished the album, and now Jordon has left Japan for a trip around the world.

As a final note, I’d like to thank all my friends who listened to vinyl records with me in my room. We always had a wonderful time and it inspired me to make this album.

I’ll never forget those times.

Hot Shots - a must-have
The Hot Shots' "Sample My Kissin'" is a gem of an album, and a must-have for any serious fan of rock 'n roll and country music in the tradition of Buddy Holly, The Everly Brothers, and Skeeter Davis. You cannot resist the charm of lead singer Chie Kodama. Highly recommend this and ALL albums by The Hot Shots.

Another Great Hot Shots Album!
I started listening to the Hot Shots back around 2003 and fell in love with their passionate happy music instantly. Their latest album, "Sample My Kissin'", delivers another wonderful collection of cheerful songs that you have no choice but to smile to when you listen to them. In this album, the music of the Hot Shots has evolved with some great new musical sounds while still maintaining the happy and sincere vocals of Chie. I would highly recommend this album, as well as all of the Hot Shots albums, to anyone I meet. It's rare to find a band who has a sound that will always cheer you up and make you bob your head with a smile on your face but the Hot Shots are certainly that band.
