銀座のスイングでボーカルの北浪良佳さんのグループで演奏しました。初共演でしたが、良佳さんの歌声に大感動。１stセットから、もう最高に楽しかったのですが、2ndセットのtake the A train を歌っている時に、「To go to sugar hill way up in Harlem」という歌詞とともにもう、ふわーーっとハーレムまで飛んでいってしまい、その後は、どこか知らない宇宙にいるようでした。
I played in Ms Yoshika Kitanami’s group in Ginza Swing. It was my first time to play with her but I became a great fan immediately. Her interpretation of music was beautiful and I enjoyed playing with her so much. Her words had magic and while we were in the same music it seemed that anything would come true.
The other members were great too. It was about 2 years since I last met Mr.Hori on piano,long time no see for Mr.Takase on bass to and the first time to play with Mr.Shigemura on drums.
