I played in Yurigaoka Modern Jazz Q with Mr.Kowa on guitar. I love Mr.Kowa’s Originals and he had a beautiful new song and I enjoyed it very much. It was an event with many bands and I was surprised that there were many Jazz fans in Yurigaoka.
I played in Apple in Kannai with Mr.Michishita on Guitar. He was amazing as usual and there was a lot to learn from. Apple is 3sers and since I have not been eating I had good concentration to the end. It is a hard conclusion for me because I love eating but I guess it is better not to eat before playing.
I played in Roppongi Sweet Basil as a member of phonolite leaded by Mr.Hiroaki Mizutani. It was an event of Ms Akemi Ohta (flutist)’s band Risk factor’s CD release gig. It was a happy opportunity being the same flutist and I really hope that the Jazz flute world will get more and more active!! Her CD is really cool and I recommend it a lot!
The first half was with Risk Factor second half was with phonolite. I really respect Mr.Mizutani for all his effort to put up all this great music!
