Born in 1967 in Tokyo. At age seven, Kenji went to New York with his father, trumpeter Terumasa Hino. His father’s influence was a factor in his taking up the trumpet at nine. Later, he entered the High School of Music and Art and studied jazz fusion.

At age 16, he took up the bass after meeting Marcus Miller and began playing jazz, soul and R&B music as a street musician in New York. Kenji’s bass playing is influenced by such giants as Jaco Pastorius, Marcus Miller and T.M. Stevens. From the age of 19, he turned professional as not only a bassist but also music director, and participated in recordings by artists active in New York, as well as recordings by Japanese artists in New York.

In 1989, Kenji worked at the Apollo Theater as a member of the house band. Later, he participated in an album recording with both his father Terumasa and his uncle, Motohiko Hino, and worked extensively as a bassist at the Blue Note and other clubs in New York. In 2003, Kenji moved his base of activity to Japan with the release of Wonderland (UCCJ-2025), his debut album in Japan. In November 2004, he released the first CD from his own label JINO JAM RECORDS, entitled Go for da Gold!!. A highlight of the album is his collaboration with the rapper Zeebra on a tribute song to Japanese Olympic swimmer Kosuke Kitajima.
