現在のYou Play Jazz [Miya のTalk Session] では、大森明さんとの対談Vol3 が放送されています。こちらもお見逃しなく。
Today was a special day for me.
I went to the recording for [Miya’s Talk Session] a corner I do on the web site You Play Jazz.
The 3rd time’s guest was Mr.Fumio Itabasi.
Such a special occasion.
Last year I had a chance to play with him in Yokohama Jazz promenade but there were so many people I didn’t have any chance to talk to him.
That is why I was very excited when this project came up.
Up until now it was a talk session and I was asking questions that I normally did not have a chance to ask.
I was talking with Mr.Kamiya who runs this site and we were thinking that as we are recording in a studio maybe we could do some playing. Mr.Itabasi kindly agreed to this idea so it became a true duo session.
I managed to play with no mike thanks to Mr.Itabasi.
It is difficult to play with no mike with a piano sound wise but I felt that Mr.Itabasi was listening to my sound so carefully and at the same time his playing is so dynamic I can not explain with words but there were a lot to learn and it was great fun.
