Dictation

I did good recording yesterday. It's going to be release in this Autumn as CD with music. Now, I am dictating my solo part in music. So funny part is that some phrases are difficult to writing down, because I played something swing feel, that can't writing in music.

Yesterday, we had a concert at Classta, a live house in Tokyo. We played Bossa Nova and Samba. Chikada-san makes a good progression recently. And to understand easy that she loves samba. I enjoyed join with her.

Summer

It's still rainy season in Japan, but getting hotter recently. I like to drink cold wine in summer. Yesterday I had the German sweet white wine called "Katz". This wine is famous for illustration of black cat on the label. Ummmm, very good taste for summer !

The Studio

I was quite lucky that I had taken flute lessons at "The Studio" founded by Trevor in England. He said "Think about music" , this important word, I sometimes forgettable......specially when I try to fingering exercises or scale, arpeggios....Sounds like a long way to progression.

Jazz Waltz

I'm going to recording on "Someday My Prince Will Come " arranged by jazz waltz. Jazz is not my major music, but this time, I have to try one. Also, I have to arrange my flute part.......It is hard.......I've heard Miles Davis who was great jazz trumpeter.....too great.....I can't play like him in all my life.

New Recording

Tired again...I'm preparing for new recording on 27th, in this month. I first time trying with piano on recordings. It's quite different between guitar and piano. I need some change for playing with pianist. Doing any job is hard work, I know. But I am lucky to have job on music that I like. I'd like to do my best on my new recordings.
