Today I played at Mr. Maeda ‘s concert finding new young jazz players. I wondered if I was OK to play amoung people that had just started their carrier but I guess I am a secound year player as a pro so I ‘m still ok. In the world of kabuki or Rakugo even if you are fourty you are still young and I think it is a bit simmilar to the jazz world. I think my carrier is just starting now but still this 2 years means a lot to me. I have played with many people and met many ways of thinking. Now I am thinking about my interptaion of jazz. I’ll talk about that later but today seemed ashame. The sound condition was really bad and the music was just like introducing us and not really musical. Although it was worthwhile just to be able to play with Mr. Maeda.
