CHUBBY GROOVE is a collaborative studio album by Koshi Inaba and Native American rock guitarist Stevie Salas, released on January 18, 2017. The album is the sixth for Koshi Inaba and is his most extensive collaboration with Stevie Salas, with the two first working together on 2004's Peace Of Mind. This would be the first of Koshi's non-B'z efforts to also be given an international iTunes release when it was made available on the service shortly after launch.
