I went to ginza Cygnas. It was my first time to play there and I didn’t know any of the players so I felt nervous but hatsumi(the leader today) was very kind so I could relax soon. I guess who you are really appears in the music. I had wanted to play with the bassist today Mr. Tetsuya Mashine for I long time so that was a great joy today. Mr.Mashine is the bassist of Jeremy Steig when he comes to Japan and I am a great fan of him. The photo is us celebrating Mr. Hirai’s birthday. It is like a home party!
