I recently recorded a demo
for an upcoming TV commercial...

If my bit is chosen,
Tokyo will hear me singing a cool
jazz ditty
for all of 45 seconds...

But if you prefer better odds,
I recommend the Artist Cafe, Tokyo Dome Hotel, 43F.

Saturday night, March 27th,
I will be performing 3 shows,
starting from 7:30 pm.

Moreno Bussoletti, will join me on piano,
and Takata, Ichi on bass...

Michio and I celebrated
the first day of Spring holiday
by biking over to the Kyodo no Mori park.

We missed the plum blossoms.

The trees were bare-
The pause before the leaves bust out...

A kindly old gentlemen seemed to read
our slightly disappointed faces,
as he pointed to some early-blooming cherry blossoms;
"The same ones as in Washington, D.C.,"
he reported...

There were daffodils, multi-colored poppies, camellias,
magnolias, ducks in ponds, babbling brooks, kids throwing frisbees...

But honestly,
I was content just to walk in the sunshine,
amidst the budding green leaves
with my son,
and just be.

The Irish Rover
The Dubliners & The Pogues





I went to the INJ St. Pat's Parade on Sunday.

Although I didn't march in it this year,
I had a great time strollin' along Omote Sando Dori
with my friend Kristy.

After the parade passed,
we met up with some friends
from last years' parade,
and we all shared a bit of the Craic...

I wore the colors...

The INJ St. Pat's Parade
will be happening this Sunday,
March 14th, 2010.


A coincidence that it's also
White Day,
in Japan...

I am so happy that Jeff Bridges
finally got his Oscar
for his role in "Crazy Heart".

And as well, "The Weary Kind" won for best song...




The Weary Kind
Theme From "Crazy Heart"
Ryan Bingham / T Bone Burnett


This song speaks to me.

Or it could to anyone, who's out there
working year after year,
in a place far from where they started...
'With a love for the music,
but not much else,
in the way of recognition...

This song validates me.
And that's what a great song should do.

I just love it.

Plum Blossoms
3-4-2010



Early Spring blossom season is upon us,
and not one minute too soon!

I hope to take advantage of it,
with a visit to the Kyodo-no-Mori gardens,
very soon...

The plums there are exquisite!
