Trying to move on to 2011 but here's something I had failed noticing from last year. 25-year-old hostess Nakano Aya has a debut album released at the end of November that was produced by Hase Hajimu, consisting of various covers done in jazz/latin styles. Artwork is by Sally Kubota.
Check out the video clip below, and find more audio samples at Jet Set.
