Hello Did you have a nice Golden week? I went to Yoga classes and spent a lot of time just for my self feeling very refreshed now. I have been talking a lot about Yoga on this blog so I would like to tell you so there is no misunderstanding but I am really bad with sports. But last year I changed my mind and decided to become to like sports. That's why I am just happy to be able to go to Yoga classes. It is a very short pace but I feel that my body is changing. I am sure that it is giving a good effect for my flute playing.
Also I am in to nature sounds. Being a musician I find it hard to relax when I am in town because there is always some Jazz as a BGM and when I hear it I start thinking about my music and then get tired. Recently I discovered that they sell CD with only nature sounds in such as sounds of wave, river and forest. Having these sounds as back ground music helps me to really concentrate.
Yesterday I played with Yukari and Noriko in Yoyogi Naru. I have written before but they are both very beautiful but powerfull players and it means a lot to the Japanese Jazz scene that there are this type of musicans. There is a lot to learn from the two of them.
