I really enjoyed the live in barbarbar. Mr.Tom Poerson has an amazing dynamic range and it was very exciting music. I am playing with Mr,Saito and Mr Uemura on this Sunday again and am looking forward a lot to it.
I played my new originals that I have been writing recently first time in a quartet and I had some new discoveries.
I am very lucky recently because since this July I have been in very high level sessions and it is challenging but worth the work. But it was a while since I last had a leader gig that I had put a lot of effort in so I couldn’t speak well which was a shame.
I have had some new discoveries in composing recently. What most makes me sad when playing jazz is to be told that jazz is to difficult and complicated. That is why I was trying to find a note that is very simple and pure even a child could understand but through these few day’s musical approach I have come to think that the true simple note comes out of very well thought out process and gone through all the possibility. I want to find a sound that can change in to any color I want it to be. Then I must get rid of all the ideas I have being thinking these few months but I guess this is a new challenge and glad that I was able to relize.
