First I want to say Adio
and Rest in Peace
to one of my favorite authors,
Kurt Vonnegut.

I have been spellbound by his writing
since I first read his Breakfast of Champions,
many moons ago.

Slaughterhouse 5 is one of my favorites of his;
also Palm Sunday, Galápagos, & TIMEQUAKE...



My gigs at B-flat, Akasaka;
and HALFTONE, Tachikawa
went very well...

I caught a cold right after my performance at B-flat.
It was a cold, rainy night on that 4th of April,
but the place was filled...
It was video'd, and Keisaku recorded the night's performance
to MP3.
Perhaps a DVD in future?

I'll post pics from the B-flat show soon.

Contrary to superstitions,
Friday the 13th was a lucky night
for me at HALFTONE !

My cold finally lifted enough to allow me to sing-
After days of vit C and TLC,
I was able to do a good show.

Keisaku Takahashi was brilliant, on piano,
and I played a few tunes on my resonator...

My son Michio came along to the gig
and carried my guitar for me.
He also took this photo:

Pamela MacCarthy live at HALFTONE, Tachikawa
April 13th, 2007


Thanks to all my friends both new and old, who showed up to support me.
It was a warm breezy night,
and between the good company and the music,
the time seemed to fly by!

My next appearance is at a new club in Akasaka;
(it's very near to B-flat)
home to jazz stride pianist Takeshi "Joe" Kamachi.

The premises has been aptly named "JOE".

JOE's jazz club Akasaka

Address: Royal Plaza, B1, 2-13-8 Akasaka,
Minato-ku, Tokyo.

Forever Lady Day


Today I'm posting a work of mine from 1995,
to commemorate the 92nd anniversary
of Billie Holiday's birth.

My show at B-flat, Akasaka was a big success!
We had a great turnout, and musically all I expected.

I will post details & photos very soon!

Pamela on the train

1000 yard stare

©2007 Pamela MacCarthy



Riding on a train
my thoughts swim
between lyrics and chords
and dreams of a front porch swing

Tromping around on the well worn streets
in new shoes that hurt
gives me something else to think about

Petals fall in the misty night
like tiny butterflies

Take me home
Steel horse

It's official,
Spring is here!

This is how a lot of people in Japan
enjoyed a beautifully mild Sunday;
in this Hanami (cherry blossom viewing) season...

A coincidence it was both Palm Sunday,
and April Fool's Day...

Tonight I will join my friend and fellow jazzer,
drummer fabulo-so, Jimmie Smith,
and head out to the opening party
of our buddy and compadre, jazz pianist Takeshi "Joe" Kamachi.

His new place is a piano jazz joint in Akasaka, named "JOE".
It features an upright-style piano...

I will be do my first gig there with Joe, on April 20, Friday.
