After the tour my plan was to sleep for 36hours and go out to the park and drink herb tea and think about the future but as my usual pattern I found that I had kept loads of things to do after I had finished the tour so I have been spending very busy days recently.
Aldo there was some interesting news so I shall write it briefly.
In the day time played in the peninsula hotel for the first time. It is at the lobby and it has a very high ceiling and it is hard to explain but the stage leads from the 2nd floor and it about 10m high. The problem is I am afraid of heights but there are 6 stages so I somehow got used to it.
It is not on my schedule but I will be playing there a few times recently. 20th from 12:20 to 18:00 22nd from 15:20 to 18:00. It is a very nice atmosphere so if you want to spend some luxury time it should be a nice place.
In the night I played in Mr.Hideto Kanai’s group which I was looking forward so much. It was in the Asian culture center. It was a great joy to be able to play his wonderful originals but the climax was unexpectedly in the song “Tenesy Waltz” . Kanai-san’s Bass was so beautiful I nearly cried. His power of “one sound” is so strong.
