Yesterday, there was a jazz live performance at Cafe Shio in front of the Fukuko Station in Iruma City. This was the third time performing at Shio, and once again, it was a great success! I am truly grateful to be able to perform in front of such a packed audience each time…

The trio lineup consisted of clarinetist and vocalist Makiko Tamura, bassist Brent Nassy, and myself. I believe we showcased an even more cohesive play than the last time.

Thanks to significant changes in the guitar setup, I feel like I've gradually gained more flexibility in my playing recently. Of course, there are still many areas where improvement is needed, but I also feel a sense of growth. I hope to continue expanding my skills in this direction!

While performances at this venue might be a bit further away, it's a wonderful cafe, so please consider dropping by sometime!
