She says that my face is alike to grant-grandfather. He was Haiku poet and water color painter. I think that free jazz like Ornette Coleman is similar to modern water color painting.
This afternoon, I have a gig to play in front of audience of all high school students. They listen to our music like Rock concert! I think that there is no difference between jazz and Rock.
My New Year Eve gig was awesome. Pianist started music in unexpected afro cuban rhythm which was so hip that I became extra excited and I did'nt remember what stuff I played. Audience talked me that I played fantastic so i may play petty well. it's a first experience.for me to play out of mind. Interesting!
I have never imagined that I play big tenor sax. But yesterday this Mark VI tenor suddenly come to my house. It's my destiny to play tenor?? It's not joke, it's real. I feel it is a big present for me now.
I write new original tunes for my EP. I also look for new soprano saxophone for these tunes. Moreover, I practice scat Solos. Duladadalala! I love Chet Baker's scat Solos.
I was very material and practical girl in Japan. However, in U.S., i dream if my dream will come true. It's interesting.
I sometimes think that I have an special ability. My friend lives far away; however, I often feel when he wants to say something to me. In Japan, I was just an ordinary girl.
I left my saxophone to repair shop in Oakland.My lovely saxophone will be there for three days. Oh my god. I always drive with my saxophone. I open the door of ice cream shop then. People walking in the street are looked different as usual. I listen to Hip Hop. I go to a birthday party of my friend. ..and? I feel something missing!
After moving to U.S., I know that Latin music is extra amazing!These things always save my life when I am in bad mood. The ballade of Latin jazz is very pretty. Moreover, I had a great experience to play in a Latin big band for three months as 1st alto. The great person who gives me the chance is one of my mentors. Love Latin jazz !
