Spring is making an early entrance, it seems,
here in Tokyo.

The most visible signs being the lovely plum blossoms.

I don't attribute this slightly early entrance to global warming.

I'm more inclined to think Mother Nature pretty much does as she damn well pleases...

Another harbinger of Spring,
albeit indoors, arriving here at last;
the annual Japan Grand Prix International Orchid Festival 2007.

It will open at Tokyo Dome, on February 23rd.

I predict there will be beautiful fragrant flowers in my very near future...

Till next time...

Greetings from the walls of my Art Gallery...

It has been awhile...

Behind the scenes,
I’ve been getting details for my upcoming gigs together,
and updating my biography page.

And resumes.

The trouble with resumes is,
you have to keep updating them!

I’ve got a couple great gigs coming up in April.

One is at B-flat, Akasaka.
Some excellent players will be featured,
some of which I haven’t had the pleasure of working with in awhile...
Check out this roster, peeps.

Keisaku Takahashi - piano
Akio Ueda - tenor sax
Brent Nussey - bass
Tommy Campbell - drums.

This show will be a mustn’t miss!

The second gig will be on April 13th, Friday,
at Half Tone, Tachikawa.

Keisaku Takahashi on piano,
myself on vocals, and perhaps I’ll play a song or two on guitar.

Combined with the atmosphere of the cherry blossoms,
and Spring,
it should be a good time to catch a "live"

I want to take this time to say
a very Happy Belated Birthday
to my dear friend Hiroshi.

He is a great guy, and a great supporter of The Arts,
in general, and to me in particular, a good friend.

Tomorrow night I will attend a goodbye party for a fellow
ex-patriate, whose about to repatriate.

The host of the Saturday Night Live series of musical shows,
at the Foreign Press Club ( which I was a part of )
Glenn Davis, is 'gon' back to Texas.

I will miss his Texan brand of hospitality,
his 2 steppin’, and lovely drawl...

All the best, Glenn!
You will be missed!

The plum trees are starting to bloom here.
This is a work from a few years ago, around this same time...

The Plum Branch,
oil pastel and water color,
40 X 31.5 cm

I know very recently in upstate New York,
where I was raised,
the snow is so high that it actually blocks
the sun from getting in some people's windows.

People are shoveling snow off their roofs.

I know my sister Wendy is probably out on her snowmobile,
having a hell of a time...

There’s no people like show people,
They smile when they are low
Yesterday they told you you would not go far,
That night you open and there you are-
Next day on your dressing room they've hung a star,
Let’s go on with the show!

There’s No Business (Like Show Business)

-Irving Berlin
