I am in Morioka now for a concert for Ms. Mimori Yusa. I got to know her through Mr.Imahori who played on my debut cd. Morioka’s beautiful air, wild sunset and the moon in the sky which is much bigger than Tokyo is just what I needed.
This type of job is totally new for me and so many new discoveries. It is a new world for me.
Where we are playing is in a very modern museum with a high ceiling and the sound effects are as if you were in a europian church. Mimori’s beautiful pure voice is perfect for this space and her songs comes straight to one’s heart. Also there are some Irish aspects which makes it good for me because I really like that taste. Also Mr. Imahori’s Guitar is so cool and it is like a deam to be able to be a member of such wonderful musicians.
The photo is what we eat at the night before in [shimaka] This is one persons portion with more than 15 types of fish including Hoya a special fish of sanriku. It was delicious!!
The next day the I could concentrate a lot in a great sound environment. It was a lot of fun and I became a great fan of Mimori. After the concert in the day time we went straight to Sendai to play in Jozenji Jazz festival. There were a lot of bands playing and so much energy floating in the air. If we could use that energy for electricity it would be great for the environment.
It was a quite confused place but once Mimori starts singing she had all the audience’s attention and I was reassured the power of music.
