Unique Yellowbird/Enja debut from Japanese trumpeter/pianist/composer and longtime Arto Lindsay collaborator Jun Miyake. Melodic, richly textured but completely unclassifiable, Stolen from Strangers features Lindsay, Brazilian superstar Vinicius Cantuaria, Dhafer Youssef and the lush sonorities of the Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra and choir. For admirers of Waits, Sylvian, Chet Baker or Hal Willner, himself a longtime Miyake booster.
