live performance

_i1d8535I'm having a live show at Farout, a jazz bar in Yokohama tomorrow. We are going to play samba and bossa nova. Members of our group are Sonia (Vo.), Jun Kagami (Gt.), and me.(Fl.) One of my part is playing "obbligato" (second melody) for vocal tunes. I think playing obbligato is more difficult than playing solos. Because I have to control volume, tone color, choose carefully any phrases, etc...... I have to do a lot of things together at the same time.
