The book has filled a vacuum in an all-in-one introduction to traveling in contemporary Okinawa and the Ryukyus that was not met before.

Dean is a highly regarded studio and freelance musician who began his musical studies on the piano at the age of 6 and played French horn in the Hawaii Youth Symphony. It was a desire to play in the high school jazz band that introduced him to the bass and improvised music.
