Today was a very special day for me. We played at the foreigners Japanese speech contest in fucyuu. We planed the program carefully so it would be easy to listen and did some Japanese songs too. The members today are around my same age and it was easy to talk so we discussed about the music before we played. It was at a hall so it was hard to tell what the audience were feeling but after at the party many people came up to us and told that they enjoyed so I felt relieved. Also it was a very honored feeling. There were 2 things I learnt today. The first is to believe in whoever you are playing with. Playing jazz you often have to play with somebody you have just met 1 hour ago so it often ends up becoming showing off just your ability. I learned today that it is very important to trust the members.
