Recently, I was saddened to learn that Richie Havens
passed away...

I was too young to go to Woodstock,
but not to appreciate the great music, that was happening !

I remember being so moved,
hearing Richie singing and playing :

"Free - dom, Free - dom, Free - dom, Free - dom
Free - dom, Free - dom, Free - dom, Free - dom...
Some - Times - I - Feel - Like - A - Motherless - Child ..."


I saw him in concert, in upstate NY, in my college days.

He was on the bill with another genius of guitar and vocals, George Benson.

I was so moved by both performances,
I vowed one day I would meet them both.

I remember Richie had to take breaks
to re-string his broken guitar strings, such was his passion...
He was a one-man, gentle storm!

Later, I had a chance to meet Richie in Los Angeles,
in the early 80's...
We were all sitting together at a cafe on Sunset Boulevard;
John Belushi, Dan Akroyd, Richie Havens, and me...

I remember how pleasant it felt to be in such company at that time...

His eyes held tranquility, his elegant hands were laden with beautiful silver rings,
and his voice felt as soothing as lying on moss, on a warm, Summer day...

Goodbye, dear Richie...

1Corinthians 2:9

But just as it is written: “Eye has not seen and ear has not heard, neither have there been conceived in the heart of man the things that God has prepared for those who love him.”

A great night, at Blue Flame!

Musically, Tomoya and I had a good show.

We work well together as a duo,
and I was happy to also play a couple tunes
on a gorgeous 12-string guitar.

We had a nice turn-out...

I was especially happy to see
James & Valerie Judd,
in the audience...

James Judd will complete his concert series
here in Tokyo, today, Sunday.

He will conduct Stravinsky's Apollon, Le sacre du printemps,
"The Rite of Spring",
at Bunko Kaikan, in Ueno.

Tomoya Hara and I will perform again next,

Last night, was a night of magical music!

As the guest of Valerie Judd,
I went to see and hear the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra
at Bunko Kaikan, in Ueno.

Valerie and I have a mutual friend,
my old buddy and college mate, Robbin,
who informed me of Valerie's upcoming visit to Tokyo.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra
was conducted by James Judd,
Valerie's husband.

30 minutes before showtime, Valerie and I had no trouble finding each other,
2 very tall girls, in Tokyo!

We got acquainted; Valerie is a mother, a musican; a viola player,
and also an ex-New Yorker...

We reminisced, and paid our respects to the late mayor, Ed Koch...

Soon, it was showtime!



Edward Elgar : Cockaigne Overture

Ludwig Von Beethoven : Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major

Piano : Francesco Piemontesi

Intermission

Vaughan Williams : Symphony No. 4 in f Minor




Francesco Piemontesi's piano work on
L.V. Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major,
was wonderful.

He is a rising star!

The performance of both Orchestra and Conductor,
on Vaughan William's Symphony No. 4 in f Minor,
was nothing short of brilliant.

I was spellbound, by the piece's emotional power, and inspired by it...

I imagine listening to this piece,
while painting my next canvas!



James Judd : conductor


Francesco Piemontesi : piano




A fabulous evening.

Valerie took me backstage to meet James,
and I congratulated him on a great performance.

Perhaps later this week,
on Friday, April 12th,
Valerie and James might join me,
for a night of the Jazz persuasion;
at my performance at BLUE FLAME;>
