It’s Saturday morning, and we will soon be leaving for Okayama, where we will be performing at LIVEHOUSE BIRD tonight. The place is very nice, and it has a long history of great jazz musicians playing there. The previous owner, Okazaki-san, unfortunately passed away a few years ago, but his son Toshiaki is continuing the business, which is really great. We really hope to see many of our old friends there tonight. Also, if someone in Okayama would be interested in a lesson with me or any of the guys (Markus Niittynen/piano, Ronan Guilfoyle/bass, Carlos Ezequiel/drums), please get in touch with Toshiaki. We could do that either late afternoon today or tomorrow morning/noon.
Hope to see you there!
